Presented by: Clifford Sheckter, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Stanford University.
Talk Title: TBD

Bio: Dr. Cliff Sheckter is a California native, growing up in the Eastern Sierra. He graduated from UCLA with a BS in Anthropology and earned summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors. He attended USC (Keck) for medical school on an academic scholarship and graduated valedictorian with Alpha Omega Alpha honors. He fell in love with burn care while at LAC+USC and matriculated into the Stanford Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Residency in 2013. While in residency, he pursued a fellowship in Health Systems Design at Stanford’s Clinical Excellence Research Center, which ignited his interest in health services research. During residency, Dr. Sheckter investigated health systems outcomes in burn care and reconstructive surgery. He pursued additional training in Surgical Critical Care at the University of Washington with a focus on integrated, complex burn care. There he investigated quality of life outcomes in burn survivors with a particular focus in financial toxicity.

Dr. Sheckter’s current research involves improving the quality of life for burn survivors and investigating the relationship between healthcare financial structures and the value of healthcare delivery. He currently holds an NIH KL-2 career development award to investigate the effects of private equity investing into ambulatory surgery within the US. In addition, he is the Ryan-Upson Scholar in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery with active investigations in health equity within surgery.

Each week, S-SPIRE hosts a 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.

Presented by: Dan Eisenberg, MD, MS, Associate Professor of Surgery, General Surgery, Stanford University.
Talk Title: TBD

Bio: Dr. Eisenberg is a fellowship-trained minimally invasive and bariatric surgeon, who is involved in national surgical and specialty societies. My area of clinical and research interest is in outcomes of metabolic and bariatric surgery in special populations. As a surgeon at the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, he is specifically interested in the outcomes of weight loss surgery in obese Veterans, who represent a population with a significant burden of co-morbidity, as well as challenging social, economic, and geographic circumstances. In addition, he is currently studying Veterans with spinal cord injury, with a goal to identify gaps in assessment and management of obesity in this special population.
