All cleft and craniofacial care professionals are invited to ACPA’s 76th Annual Meeting at Westin La Paloma in Tucson, AZ, April 9-13, 2019 to explore advances in research, clinical and team-driven care.
The keynote presentation will be given by Adil Haider, MD, MPH, FACS, an active trauma and acute care surgeon, prolific researcher, and the Kessler Director for the Center for Surgery and Public Health (CSPH).
Dr. Haider is credited with uncovering racial disparities after traumatic injury and establishing the field of trauma disparities research. He is regarded as one of the foremost experts on healthcare inequities in the United States, with projects focused on describing and mitigating unequal outcomes based on gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age and socioeconomic status. His other research focuses on long-term clinical and functional outcomes after trauma and emergency general surgery, optimal treatment of trauma/critically ill patients in resource-poor settings, and advanced analytic techniques for surgical health services research. Dr. Haider believes that equality is the cornerstone of medicine, and his professional goal is to eradicate disparities in healthcare in the United States.
Registration will open in January 2019.
