Richard Stahlhut

Dr. Richard Stahlhut is the PM-boarded physician on the ACPM staff.  His efforts are primarily focused on a CDC-funded project to better understand how the PM specialty, with its systems thinking and prevention focus, can help transform the healthcare system around prevention.   

Dr. Stahlhut’s experience includes environmental health, human subjects research, data analysis, and medical informatics. Prior to joining ACPM, he conducted research on common environmental contaminants such as bisphenol A (BPA) and analyzed CDC NHANES data for the Consumer Reports “Arsenic in your food” report.

Earlier in his career, Rick was among the first medical informatics fellows at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and taught coursework that integrated core tenants of preventive medicine.
