MedStar Honored for Work on Health Equity by AAMC

Almost three years ago, MedStar Health researchers, along with collaborators from Georgetown University, joined a group of eight institutions brought together by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), to plan and evaluate strategies to produce coordinated systems for community health. I am happy to announce that their work on this project is complete and acknowledge the team for their efforts!

At the end of June, the entire team received an award for their participation at a dinner and the work was presented at the final meeting for participating sites by Angela D. Thomas, DrPH, MPH, MBA; Vicki W. Girard, JD; and Deliya Wesley, PhD, MPH.

The research conducted during this initiative was presented at the 2019 MedStar Health-Georgetown University Research Symposium! The poster, "An Empirical Approach to Planning for Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLPs): Initial Findings from the MedStar Franklin Square Service Area, " can be viewed here.

Congratulations to the MedStar AAMC Team for all your hard work, dedication and contributions!

The full team was Angela Thomas, Jamie Padmore, David Mayer,Terry Fairbanks, Chris Goeschel, Deliya Wesley, Derek Delia, Vicki Girard, Lisa Pollan , Deborah Perry, Emeobong Martin, Tricia Isennock, Diana Quinn, Sullivan Robinson, Eileen Moore, Ana Caskin, Megan Wall, Allyn Rosenberger, and Uchenna Emeche.
