Amy Schultz' head shot.

Current role

Amy Schultz’s role at the Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW) is to facilitate research examining the role various environmental exposures may have on people’s health. In addition, she supports and oversees community engagement, outreach, and data dissemination efforts in under-served communities in the city of Milwaukee. Prior to her current role, Schultz worked as an ancillary study coordinator at SHOW. One such ancillary study included the Anglers Project, where the Department of Health Services used the SHOW infrastructure to assess chemicals in the blood of licensed anglers in the state and how levels of chemicals may be related to fish consumption.

Research interests

Schultz recently completed her PhD in Environmental Epidemiology at the University of Wisconsin. Her research interests include studying environmental exposures via water and air pollution from a multitude of sources, but her dissertation focused on industrial agricultural sources of air pollution and allergic disease among Wisconsin residents.
