Robyn Buchsbaum serves as the Director of Strategic Initiatives at the American College Health Association where she oversees project work related to key issues on today’s college campuses. Project topics include mental well-being, vaccine coverage on college campuses, resilience in first-year students, STI/STD prevention, sexual health, and campus sexual assault. This past year, she has served as the staff liaison to the ACHA COVID-19 Task Force where she helps steer a group of 30 college health leaders as they worked frenetically to meet the urgent needs of campuses. To date, the task force has produced eight guidance documents, hosted almost 20 webinars, supported two COVID-19 educational summits, conducted five-member surveys/reports, and served as the leading voice of college health nationally.
Robyn received her Master’s in Health Science from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health and worked for many years as a hospital-based health educator. After taking some time away to raise a family and shepherd them through five inter-state moves, she is happy to be back in her home state of Maryland where she can now focus her attention on helping college students as they transition into adult health consumers.
In her spare time, Robyn spends her free hours volunteering for various organizations that focus on animal rescue, food insecurity, and empowering teen girls from disadvantaged areas. She also enjoys cooking, long walks with her rescue pup Po, and binge-listening to podcasts.
