PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) - The Department of Health has announced that a deputy examiner from California who graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is Rhode Island's latest chief medical examiner.
Christina Stanley will replace William Cox, the state's acting chief medical examiner. She begins work October 9.
Stanley served as chief deputy medical examiner in San Diego County since 2002. She was a deputy in the same office for five years before that.
Health Department Director Michael Fine said that Stanley has a "unique expertise" in neuropathology. He says the hiring committee was impressed by her work identifying a trend of increased deaths from methamphetamines.
Stanley received her undergraduate degree from MIT and her medical degree from the University of California at San Diego.
