Dr. Callegary is an obstetrician gynecologist and health services researcher. Her work focuses on developing and testing interventions to improve provider-patient communication, patient-centered care, and equity in reproductive health. Funded by an HSR&D Career Development Award, she developed and piloted a web-based tool to facilitate shared decision making conversations about pregnancy and contraceptive decisions and, ultimately, to support reproductive autonomy and improve reproductive health outcomes among women Veterans. She is now conducting a multicenter randomized controlled trial of the tool in VA primary care settings.
She also studies mechanisms of racial disparities in gynecologic outcomes in the VA to inform interventions to promote equity in VA gynecologic and surgical care. She attended Harvard University for medical school and the University of California, San Francisco for her residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology. After working in clinical practice for several years, she completed an MPH in epidemiology at the University of Washington and a VA postdoctoral fellowship in health services research. She is currently Associate Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Adjunct Associate Professor of Health Services at the University of Washington and a Core Investigator at the VA HSR&D Seattle-Denver Center of Innovation for Veteran-Centered and Value-Driven Care.
