While at CDC, Hogue initiated many of the agency’s current reproductive health programs, including the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), the National Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System, and the National Infant Mortality Surveillance (NIMS) project that initiated the national and state-level development and use of linked birth and death records.

Prior to her government service, Hogue was on the biometry faculty of the Arkansas medical school (1977-82) and the biostatistics faculty of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, School of Public Health (1974-77). She earned her master’s and doctoral degrees from UNC.
