Ginger is Assistant Director of Research for CPHSS and Assistant Professor at the Brown School. Her research focuses on the dissemination and implementation (D&I) of evidence-based practices addressing HIV prevention, especially the sustainability and de-implementation of interventions.

In addition to her role at CPHSS, Dr. McKay leads the Infectious Disease – Dissemination and Implementation Science (IDDI) Initiative at the Institute for Public Health with significant support from the Brown School. IDDI is designed to cultivate implementation science research in infectious disease to meaningfully improve evidence-based prevention and treatment of infectious diseases in the St. Louis Region and beyond.
