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.
