A physician and epidemiologist, Dr. Fox has worked for the Agency since 1990. The research he directs focuses primarily on pediatric and/or perinatal health services, but he has projects that evaluate management of a variety of adult conditions as well, particularly prostate cancer.
Dr. Fox previously worked for the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institutes of Health, and the Health Resources and Services Administration. Prior to joining the PHS, he lived and worked at the Beijing Medical College and Beijing Children's Hospital as a grantee of the National Academy of Science in the initial phase of the U.S.-China National Education Exchange. Subsequently he consulted for the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (1983), the World Bank (1985), and the RAND Corporation (1988-89) for projects involving epidemiology and health care financing in China.
In 2001, AHRQ seconded Dr. Fox for six months to the World Health Organization, where his work concerned methods for evaluating differences in the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of standard health interventions in different locales.
