Tamara Morgan bats in the 'clean-up' position on several Dartmouth Institute teams, including comparative effectiveness and coproduction, using her expertise in writing to be sure a manuscript is impactful and clear. She is still fielding manuscripts (61 and counting) for the Spine Patient Outcomes Research Trial (SPORT-PI, James Weinstein, funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases), one of the most important trials ever run for low back pain. SPORT laid the groundwork for two Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Centers in Musculoskeletal Diseases, the current with Anna Tosteson, ScD, as the director. Morgan also works closely with several principal investigators in developing and submitting their grants, principally those submitted for National Institutes of Health or Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute funding. As a 21-year veteran of The Dartmouth Institute, she is very involved in its internal workings and culture. She has sat on The Dartmouth Institute Council since its inception in 2013, is a member of the Workspace Working Group, and created a book discussion group around health care and patient issues, two of which were Emperor of All Maladies by Siddartha Mukherjee and Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. Morgan is a proud native of Iowa City, IA., and holds a BGS in English, French, and Chinese, a BA with Literary Studies, and an MA in comparative literature from the University of Iowa.
