Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

My focus in medical education is in health equity and anti-racism. This has included building and studying a longitudinal curriculum for emergency medicine and pediatric emergency medicine trainees and faculty, Discussing Anti-Racism and Equity (DARE); innovating simulation approaches for equity-focused skills; and creating and leading a variety of equity and anti-racism focused workshops and lectures for audiences varying from medical scribes to AAP conference attendees. I feel strongly that education is a key part of a multi-pronged approach to improve the medical experience for historically marginalized patients and ultimately improve equity in medical care.
