Bio: I am Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Neurosurgery who staffs in the ED and Neurocritical Care Unit at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics in Madison, WI. I completed both my emergency medicine residency and neurocritical care fellowship at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. This somewhat unusual path to neurocritical care and hunger for more resources aimed at trainees led me to become Co-Editor-in-Chief of The Pocket Guide to Neurocritical Care. I currently serve on the Executive Planning Committee for the inaugural iWIN (International Women in Intensive and Critical Care Medicine) Conference which has been tentatively rescheduled for June 2021. https://www.neurocriticalcare.org/higherlogic/s/page/pocket-guide

Contact: hutchins.courtney@gmail.com 

 

Bio: Dr. Hutchins is an emergency medicine resident at the University of Chicago. Her interests lie in health policy and advocacy with a focus on access to health care and insurance coverage, women’s issues, and systemic barriers to care for vulnerable populations. Her academic projects have focused on physician perceptions of Medicaid expansion, trauma informed care delivery, hospital based violence intervention, and sexual and reproductive health. She authored the Introduction to Health Policy chapter in the EMRA resident advocacy handbook and currently sits on the ACEP state legislative and regulatory and quality improvement committees. Dr. Hutchins is an advocate for women in medicine and the current founder and chair of the EM women’s board at University of Chicago.

Dr. Hutchins obtained her medical doctorate from Rush University in Chicago and holds a Masters of Public Health in health policy and management from Drexel University.

Name: Kristi Maso MD, MPH

Title: Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine

Institution: Medical College of Wisconsin
Location: Milwaukee, WI
Contact: kmaso23@gmail.com

 

Bio: My name is Kristi Maso. I am an Assistant Professor in both the departments of Emergency Medicine and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. I did my residency training at Detroit Receiving Hospital and my fellowship at Cooper University in Camden, New Jersey. I have a special interest in the early management of critically ill patients, with the belief that what we do, and don't do, in the ED, has a direct effect on patient's hospital trajectory and sometimes beyond. I split my time clinically between the ED and Medical ICU, and have specific interests in transitions of care of critically ill patients between the two locations which was particularly beneficial during the covid pandemic. I also conduct research in areas of sexual harassment and discrimination of women in emergency medicine with a special interest on why women leave or avoid areas of leadership.

Name: Dina Wallin, MD

Title: Assistant clinical professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, Division of pediatric emergency medicine

Institution: UCSF-SFGH
Location: San Francisco, CA
Contact: dina.wallin@ucsf.edu


Bio: I completed my residency in EM at UCSF-SFGH and a fellowship in PEM in Austin, TX. I've been back on faculty at UCSF for 4 years, and work both adult and pediatric shifts. My main areas of interest are medical ethics, medical education, and peds (of course). I've spoken in extramural settings on pediatric psychiatric emergencies, ethics in the peds ED, pediatric fever/trauma/respiratory distress/derm emergencies/procedural sedation, and introversion in emergency medicine-- and am always open to new topics. I really love working with learners I've never met before, and have received high ratings from every speaking gig I've done. I'd be thrilled to meet your learners and join you for an hour or two of learning together!
