Dr. Blok has extensive experience in both clinical practice and health behavior change research. She has practiced as a nurse for nearly a decade in inpatient and outpatient settings, with advanced practice and education certifications, as well as clinical experience in tobacco cessation.

Through her post-doctoral fellowship, she has gained experience in implementation science methods and performed implementation program formative work, design, strategy, and measurement.
