Sarah Wood, MD, MSHP, leads a computational science lab that utilizes multiple sources of health system data to identify gaps in quality and equitable delivery of HIV prevention care. In this seminar, she will talk about how she uses the data derived from her lab in a rapid cycle innovation approach to develop and implement HIV prevention interventions focused on the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s (CHOP) primary care network, clinicians, parents and guardians, and teens.
Wood is a physician scientist with a career mission to improve quality and equitable delivery of sexual and reproductive health care through developing and implementing innovative health care delivery strategies for adolescents and young adults. A former community health worker and HIV tester, she is now an assistant professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine; an attending physician, assistant director of adolescent HIV services, and a faculty member in PolicyLab at CHOP; and the co-director of the Penn Center for AIDS Research Clinical Core. Wood provides medical care to youth living with and at risk of HIV at the CHOP Adolescent Initiative Clinic. Her NIMH-funded research focuses on developing and implementing HIV prevention interventions in adolescent primary care for youth with STIs.
