Peggy Honoré is the AmeriHealth Caritas - General Russel Honoré Endowed Professor at Louisiana State University (LSU) Health Sciences Center School of Public Health. Her research interest and teaching areas include health policy, quality, workforce, and finance. Honoré is widely regarded as the leading national expert on public health finance given her pioneering work to define the field, conduct research, and develop publications that span over 15 years.

Prior to returning fulltime to LSU in June 2015, Honoré served for eight years as the Director of the Public Health System, Finance, and Quality Program in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In that role she led HHS-wide efforts to define public health quality and develop methodologies for measurement of quality across the public health system. A major project started under her leadership was to explore methods for increasing community college engagement in educating the public health workforce. Honoré was a co-sponsor of the Community Colleges and Public Health Project that established associate degree and certificate prototype curricular models for Health Navigation and Public Health Generalist. Major HHS publications under her tenure include the Consensus Statement on Quality in the Public Health System and identification of quality priorities as noted in the report Priority Areas for Improvement of Quality in Public Health.

Honoré’s professional experiences in health care leadership, finance, and policy include roles as COO/CFO for a group of four clinics, corporate finance for Exxon Company USA and McDonald’s Corporation, university Vice President for Finance, and Chief Science (Research) Officer and CFO for two state health departments. She served from 2013-2015 as a member of the Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Population Health and for three years (2012-2015) on the ASPPH’s Framing the Future: The Second 100 Years of Education for Public Health Task Force. Honoré’s policy experience includes seven years working with state legislatures on higher education and public health policy. She also testified and worked with a U. S. Senate HELP subcommittee on the reauthorization of the Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act. In that role, Honoré conducted research to inform the work of the Senate Committee and provided language for inclusion in the law to support a $50 million appropriation for public health systems research. Honoré has authored over 40 peer reviewed journal articles, three book chapters, numerous government reports, and developed as guest editor three issues on finance and health disparities for the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice.

Honoré holds adjunct titles at Tulane University and the Medical University of South Carolina. She earned a Doctorate in Health Administration (DHA) with honors (1st in class) from the Medical University of South Carolina and Master of Health Administration (MHA) from Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. She holds an undergraduate degree in Accounting. Honoré is a native of New Orleans and has one daughter, who resides in New Haven, CT.
