Evan Myers, MD, MPH, is the Walter L. Thomas Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and an adjunct Associate Professor of epidemiology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is Associate Director of the Duke EPC. His primary research interests are in clinical epidemiological methods—including decision analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, and other mathematical modeling techniques—applied to women’s health research. He has served as PI or co-investigator on numerous Duke Evidence-based Practice Center evidence reports, starting with one of the first reports in the EPC program: cervical cytology. Other report topics have included management of prolonged pregnancy, management of adnexal mass, management of uterine fibroids, genomic testing in cancer, assisted reproductive technology, value of information analysis for research prioritization, oral contraceptives for prevention of ovarian cancer, and screening for postpartum depression. Dr. Myers has experience in supporting guidelines development, most recently using an updated version of the model developed for the original cervical cytology evidence report to assist the USPSTF and the American Cancer Society in developing cervical cancer screening guidelines and leading the application of the GRADE framework to the American Cancer Society’s guidelines process. Dr. Myers also has experience with the design and conduct of clinical and observational research, and is currently the PI of COMPARE-UF, a national registry focused on comparative effectiveness of treatments for uterine fibroids.
