Dr. Kate Jochimsen is a researcher at the Center for Health Outcomes and Interdisciplinary Research (CHOIR) at Massachusetts General Hospital and a Member of the Faculty at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Jochimsen completed her MS in athletic training at Florida International University, her PhD in rehabilitation sciences at the University of Kentucky, and postdoctoral training in biomechanics at The Ohio State University. The goal of her research is to advance psychologically informed practice by developing and implementing effective mind-body and movement-based interventions to optimize clinical outcomes and improve well-being for patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Shelby Baez, Ph.D., ATC, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science. Dr. Baez is a certified and licensed athletic trainer with an expertise in psychology of sport injury and an approved non-certified mentor for aspiring CMPCs through the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP). Dr. Baez’s research examines the impact of psychosocial factors on health outcomes after sport-related injury, with a focus on patients after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Her lab examines the impact of psychosocial factors on biological outcomes, such as neurocognitive function, biomechanical alterations, and secondary injury risk. Her lab also seeks to identify clinically feasible and novel psychosocial interventions to improve health outcomes. Dr. Baez has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and other regional and national foundations to support her work. She is a member of AASP, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), was the recipient of the AASP Doctoral Dissertation Award in 2020, and the recipient of the ACSM New Investigator Award in 2023.
