"Enhancing Our Cultural Dexterity: The Next Step in Reducing Disparities and Providing Patient-Centered Surgical Care"
Adil Haider, MD, MPH, FACS is an active trauma and acute care surgeon, prolific researcher, and the Kessler Director for the Center for Surgery and Public Health (CSPH), a joint initiative of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. He is also the Deputy Editor of JAMA Surgery and holds numerous leadership positions, including President of the Association for Academic Surgery (AAS). Dr. Haider is credited with uncovering racial disparities after traumatic injury and establishing the field of trauma disparities research. He is regarded as one of the foremost experts on healthcare inequities in the United States, with projects focused on describing and mitigating unequal outcomes based on gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age and socioeconomic status. His other research focuses on long-term clinical and functional outcomes after trauma and emergency general surgery, optimal treatment of trauma/critically ill patients in resource-poor settings, and advanced analytic techniques for surgical health services research. He has formally mentored more than 100 research trainees, published more than 250 peer reviewed papers and currently serves as Principal Investigator (PI) on extramural grants worth more than ten million dollars. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2017 Ellis Island Medal of Honor. Dr. Haider believes that equality is the cornerstone of medicine, and his professional goal is to eradicate disparities in healthcare in the United States.
New this year, the Department of Surgery will host a series of Research Roundtables. These events are intended to promote dialogue and networking opportunities for researchers from across Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Each Roundtable event is focused on a specific cross-disciplinary theme related to surgery. Invited faculty researchers will share examples of ongoing research with surgical faculty and trainees during an informal discussion over dinner. We hope this will foster collaborations related to the chosen theme, and facilitate discussions between scientific faculty from across the College and Medical School. Dinner is provided.

Surgical Research in Progress Meeting
Surgery Research in Progress conferences are held bi-weekly as part of the Chair's Academic and Non-technical Development Opportunities" (CAN-DO) Meeting on Wednesdays from 5 - 6pm in theDepartment of Surgery Conference Room. This forum is the perfect place for surgical faculty and trainees to convey their vision for a new research endeavor, share an abstract being prepared for a regional or national meeting, or practice that big talk you have coming up at national meeting!
Please contact Kayla Moore (Kayla.O.Moore@dartmouth.edu) or Philip Goodney (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you wish to present your work!
VA Outcomes Group
