A skilled multi-tasker, Sebouh Kouyoumjian provides administrative and research support for the HMA San Francisco office. With a diverse range of experience at the federal, state and local levels, Sebouh identifies and presents complex health data and information in a concise, engaging way. While he enjoys researching all aspects of the healthcare system, Sebouh has a personal interest in demographics and increasing access to care.
Sebouh joined HMA from the University of San Francisco where he was a health service management analyst. He conducted qualitative and quantitative research, health policy analysis, and program development and evaluation. He supported a large community health assessment project focused on Bayview Hunters Point, an underserved and impoverished community of 100,000 residents in San Francisco. Sebouh evaluated healthcare needs by leading qualitative data collection efforts, including transcribing and summarizing stakeholder and focus group interviews. He constructed healthy eating solutions for the community, identified $2 million in grant and tax credits, and published a 20-page community assessment report.
During his time with USF, Sebouh addressed the needs of 400,000 residents in San Joaquin County. He created policy solutions for better access to healthcare services through a telemedicine approach and created a platform for the public-private partnership to expand technological infrastructure in the community. Additionally, he led a program proposal aimed at reducing infectious rates of hepatitis B virus (HBV) among Burmese refugees in Oakland – conducting stakeholder and focus group interviews with healthcare leaders, professionals and Burmese refugees to determine the greatest needs of the target population. He also led research efforts and built coalitions with three community-based organizations that resulted in cost-sharing agreements and establishing process and outcome evaluation metrics to effectively measure program success. He created a 3-year program budget and curriculum for cultural competency training.
As a legislative and policy analyst for the former president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Sebouh analyzed funding structures for government contractors, researched city labor markets, presented policy recommendations, and investigated affordable housing issues and tenant rights.
Sebouh earned his master’s degree in public administration and health service administration with a focus on health, policy and social inequality from the University of San Francisco. He received his bachelor’s degree in political science from University of California, Riverside.
In his spare time, Sebouh can be found singing with the famous Bay Area Arab ensemble group ASWAT, jogging, doing yoga or reading a new book.
