January 27, 2022: "Medicaid Expansion and Emergency Department Wait Times" with Lindsay Allen, PhD, MA

Register

Dr. Allen will present results from a study examining the impact of Medicaid expansion on emergency department wait times and throughput, key indicators of emergency department crowding.

Guest:
Lindsay Allen, PhD, MA
Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Dr. Lindsay Allen is an assistant professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Feinberg School of Medicine, as well as the IPHAM Buehler Center for Health Policy and Economics. As a health economist, she studies the way state and federal policies affect health care access and costs, especially for marginalized populations.


February 3, 2022: "Leveraging Integrative Medicine to Advance Health Equity" with Shelley R. Adler, PhD & Maria T. Chao, DrPH

Register

Integrative health equity is an emerging field focused on applying integrative strategies to improve health among underserved and vulnerable populations and testing models to expand access to integrative medicine in inadequately resourced settings. This presentation addresses the role for integrative medicine in ensuring health and healthcare equity through efforts in clinical care, education, and research.

Guests:
Shelley R. Adler, PhD
Executive Director, Osher Center for Integrative Health
University of California, San Francisco

Maria T. Chao, DrPH
Associate Director of Research, Associate Director for Health Equity and Diversity
Osher Center for Integrative Health

This presentation is part of the Osher Center Grand Rounds, which is a collaboration between IPHAM and the Osher Center for Integrative Health at Northwestern University.


February 10, 2022: "Cirrhosis: An Underappreciated Public Health Challenge" with Daniela Ladner, MD, MPH

Register

Cirrhosis is a chronic disease that is increasing in prevalence, that affects ~5-10 million adult Americans. While most patients with cirrhosis are compensated (not very sick), they too require resource-intensive, chronic and expensive care - that is underappreciated. Many opportunities exist to improve care for patients with cirrhosis.

Guests:
Daniela Ladner, MD, MPH
Professor of Surgery
Director Northwestern University Transplant Outcomes Research Collaborative (NUTORC)
Northwestern University

This webinar is part of the Translational Applications in Public Health mini-series, which is a collaboration between the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) and the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences (NUCATS) Institute.


February 17, 2022: "Exercise and Diet as Therapy for Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction" with Dalane W. Kitzman, MD

Register

Exercise capacity is markedly reduced in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, due to cardiac, vascular, and skeletal muscle factors. Both exercise training and dietary weight loss improve exercise capacity and quality of life, and the improvements are associated with improvements in systemic inflammation, body composition, and mitochondrial function. Hospitalized patients with acute HFpEF have the most severe impairments, and appear to respond well to a novel rehab intervention.

Guests:
Dalane W. Kitzman, MD
Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine and Geriatrics
Kermit G. Phillips II Chair in Cardiology
Wake Forest School of Medicine


February 24, 2022: "Leveraging Implementation Science and Informatics to Improve Cardiovascular Care in Real World Primary Care Settings" with Abel Kho, MD, MS, FACMI & Theresa L. Walunas, PhD, FAMIA

Register

While many clinical interventions are successful in highly structured research settings, it’s essential that these interventions be incorporated into real world primary care settings to have an impact on population health. Implementation science methods combined with informatics strategies for information delivery and data collection are at the heart of translating studies into practice settings. In this talk, we will share strategies and findings from Healthy Hearts in the Heartland, part of the Agency for Heathcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ's) EvidenceNOW initiative, one of the largest studies of cardiovascular quality improvement in primary care ever implemented in the United States.

Guests:
Abel Kho, MD, MS, FACMI
Director of Center for Health Information Partnerships (CHIP)
Director, Institute for Augmented Intelligence in Medicine (I.AIM)
Professor of Medicine and Preventive Medicine

Megan Crowley-Matoka - Considering “Normality”

Online - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics Program

Presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Megan Crowley-Matoka, PhD
Associate Professor, Medical Education
Director, Medical Humanities & Bioethics Graduate Program
Member, Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Considering Normality

This talk will take up the topic of normality that was suggested by our MHB students for exploration in our fall Flash(y) Bioethics session which offered a series of 5-minute disciplinary dives into keywords and issues in medical humanities and bioethics. When illness knocked normality off the original roster, I promised that this crucial, complex, and contentious concept would get the full Monty treatment later in the year. So, drawing on anthropological fieldwork and theory -- and inspired by our students suggestions this talk will consider the role of normality in medicine, bioethics, and society more broadly.

”A Man’s Mouth is His Castle”: Anti-Fluoridation and the Visceral Public - Jenelle Johnson

Online - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics Program

Presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Jenell Johnson, PhD
Mellon-Morgridge Professor of the Humanities
Associate Professor of Rhetoric, Politics
University of Wisconsin-Madison

A Man s Mouth is His Castle :
Anti-Fluoridation and the Visceral Public

In this talk Professor Johnson examines a grassroots effort to halt fluoridation in a small American town in the early 1950s. Looking closely at the controversy as it played out in town hall meetings and local newspapers over a number of years, she argues that a link between intense emotion and bodily boundaries what she describes as the formation of visceral publics is critical to understanding opposition to fluoridation in the midcentury United States, a frame that continues to resonate in anti-vaccination discourse today.

The Myth of Rugged American Individualism and How It's Harming All of Us - Katherine Wasson

Online - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics Program

Presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Katherine Wasson, PhD, MPH, HEC-C
Associate Professor
Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics and
Stritch School of Medicine
Loyola University Chicago

The Myth of Rugged American Individualism and
How It's Harming All of Us

The version of rugged American individualism we learned in school is a myth. People have always relied on one another for help at different times and in different ways. We need others not only to survive but to flourish. Dispelling this myth is more important than ever in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic where rugged individualism and claims of autonomy sometimes seem untethered from a recognition of responsibilities. Professor Wasson will examine harms stemming from this myth and potential ways to address.

City of Survivors: Psychological Trauma and Social Services in Post-War Sarajevo - Peter Locke

Online - 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Master of Arts in Medical Humanities & Bioethics Program

Presents

A Montgomery Lecture

With

Peter Locke, PhD
Associate Professor of Instruction
Co-Director of Undergraduate Studies
Global Health Studies
Northwestern University

City of Survivors:
Psychological Trauma and Social Services in Post-War Sarajevo

In this presentation, Professor Locke will discuss his long-running ethnographic work on politics and experiences of psychological trauma in Sarajevo, capital of the postwar, ex-Yugoslav country of Bosnia-Herzegovina. In recent decades, the concept of psychological trauma has grown in prominence and impact around the world, increasingly bound up with transformed notions of citizenship, rights, and diverse politics of grievance, justice, and social repair. Tracking the story of a Sarajevo psychosocial support organization focused on transgenerational trauma across 25 years of operation, Professor Locke will highlight lessons to be learned for the politics of trauma and Global Mental Health today, consider how pandemic stress intersects with existing historical traumas in the region, and emphasize the ways in which context deeply matters in regarding and intervening in the pain of others.
