The Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), in collaboration with Venture Café, is hosting Precision Medicine Series on the third Thursday of every month! This month, Dr. Fahd Ahmad will present “SabERmetrics and the Data Driven ER,” and Dr. Rupa Patel will present “The Bang for Our Buck: Let’s Use Implementation Science to End the HIV Epidemic.”

Our session speakers this month are Dr. Rupa Patel and Dr. Fahd Ahmad. Dr. Patel is an innovator in public health initiatives that provide HIV-preventive care to at-risk young adults and will talk about her success and challenges implementing the HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis paradigm. Dr. Ahmad, whose research interests parallel Dr. Patel’s, will talk on his data-driven implementation of screening mechanisms to assess adolescents in the Emergency Department for sexually-transmitted diseases. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about the use of effective dissemination and implementation science and technology of health informatics to improve public health.
