I have a 30+ year career focused on emerging public health crises from COVID-19 to childhood obesity and HIV. Understanding social determinants of health and addressing health disparities are in my DNA. Through the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, where I am a Senior Fellow, I focus on identifying and addressing patient barriers to use of digital health tools such as telehealth and patient portals. Through Public Health Innovators, LLC, I bring public health perspectives to health innovation, and innovation to public health processes. I created DESCAR, the Digital Equipment, Skills and Connectivity Assessment and Referral tool for health systems to facilitate patient access to telehealth and digital medicine. As a member of the NODE.Health Executive Board, I encourage consideration of disadvantaged patients' needs with regard to digital medicine. At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, I direct the Urban Health Initiative and co-developed a virtual reality training application to improve care and empathy around the social determinants of health: https://equityvrtraining.org/#simulations.
I worked at NIAID/NIH in Epidemiology, Prevention and Vaccine Trials in the earliest days of the AIDS epidemic, developing considerable insight into the rapidly unfolding COVID-19 epidemic.
