CECPR had the privilege of hosting 3 LDI SUMR Scholars this past summer. Jason Mazique, an undergraduate from Williams College, worked with Dr. Zachary Meisel and project manager Erica Goldberg to carry out a qualitative project that seeks to understand the experience of ED patients with acute pain. Thad Woodard, a medical student from the University of Pennsylvania, worked with Dr. Eugenia South and research coordinator Kehinde Oyekanmi to study the impact that green space has on employee burnout. Kayla Dunn, an undergraduate from the University of Virginia, worked with Dr. Zachary Meisel, Dr. Marilyn Schapira, and research coordinator Abby Dolan on piloting a shared decision making tool in the ED. Check out the photo slide show of our scholars and their mentors.
The SUMR program is an initiative by the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) and the Health Care Management Department of the Wharton School to provide underrepresented minority undergraduate students, or interested others, an opportunity to explore the exciting field of health services research.
