Presented by: Jonathan Scott, Assistant Professor, General Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Michigan
Talk Title: “Cured into Destitution: Financial Toxicity Among the Acutely Ill and Injured.”
Bio: Dr. Scott’s health policy and health services research interests are focused on improving access to timely, affordable, high-quality surgical care for the acutely ill and injured. Dr. Scott has worked on improving our understanding of the impact of the recent health insurance expansion efforts of the Affordable Care Act (such as the Dependent Coverage Provision and Medicaid Expansion) on access to care and financial risk protection among trauma and emergency general surgery (EGS) patients—with a particular emphasis on marginalized patient populations. Dr. Scott is also working to understand how to optimize longer term outcomes after trauma and EGS by trying to understand major trauma and major EGS as chronic diseases, rather than isolated and acute events. Dr. Scott works with collaborators at CHOP, throughout IHPI, and is also heavily involved in the Michigan Center for Global Surgery.

Each week, S-SPIRE hosts an in-person Work-In-Progress session (WIP) for faculty members and trainees to present their research and receive feedback on projects in every phase of development—from drafting specific aims pages, to parsing grant review committee comments, to abstracts/papers/methods in preparation.
