Welch Center Core Faculty member Ebony Boulware, MD, MPH, has been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor. In addition to her appointment in the Welch Center, she holds appointments in the Division of General Internal Medicine in the School of Medicine and the Department of Epidemiology in the School of Public Health.
Dr. Boulware's promotion was based on her achievements as a Clinician Investigator with expertise in clinical epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, and health services research. Her work on organ transplantation and health disparities has influenced a national audience far beyond the field of internal medicine, including surgeons and policy makers.
Her current research activities focus on identifying patient and physician barriers to the receipt of guideline-concordant care for patients with chronic kidney disease, identifying patient, physician, and population factors affecting the receipt of kidney transplantation, and race and gender differences in attitudes toward organ donation.
