Burn injury in vulnerable populations (Past Webinar)

Tuesday, June 8, 2021
5:00-6:30pm (ET)

About the Webinar

Dr. Logsetty is pleased to introduce an exciting panel of experts to discuss burn injury in ‘vulnerable populations.’ We will discuss the definition of ‘Social determinants of health’ and how this applies to groups at risk, how to examine these determinants using administrative data and in a clinical setting, how to engage at-risk populations in research and program development, and how to incorporate all of these factors in creating clinically relevant programs.

Dr. Cheryl Currie
Dr. Cheryl Currie
Principal Investigator

Dr. Currie is an Associate Professor of Public Health and Alberta Innovates Translational Research Chair in Aboriginal Health at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta. A social epidemiologist by training, she created the Social Epidemiology in Action Lab to examine and address the social determinants of substance misuse and health risk behaviour among children, youth and adults. The Social Epidemiology in Action Lab, led by Dr. Cheryl Currie, examines the ways in which social experiences, both positive and negative, can get under the skin to shape health, behaviour, and stress biology with a special focus on substance use.

She engages a wide variety of methodologies including randomized trial designs, observational studies, systematic reviews, qualitative inquiries, and big data analyses.

Her team’s work is framed by a participatory action research perspective. They actively partner with community collaborators and organizations, not only to inform their research questions and direction, but to engage in research with them as empowered partners.

Barkley Stewart MD PhD MScPH
Faculty Lead

Presenting: Mitigating financial vulnerabilities: Return to and livelihood after burn injury

Dr. Barclay Stewart is a practicing surgeon at UW Medicine, Harborview. He spent two years as an NIH–funded Northern/Pacific Fogarty Global Health Fellow working to improve surgical care in low– and middle–income countries (LMICs). Dr. Stewart's research focused on pragmatic solutions to enhance care of the injured, burned and those in need of emergency surgery in health facilities in Ghana. He did this through systematic assessment of resource need, characterization of disease burden and modeling the effect of strategic interventions. In addition, he studied surgical epidemiology in complex humanitarian emergencies and from population–based studies of surgical need and injury burden in Nepal, Sierra Leone, and Iraq. Dr Stewart is pursuing a career in trauma, burns, and acute care surgery with attention on LMICs and aims to bring evidence–based decision making to humanitarian aid and surgical capacity development in LMIC health systems.
