GIM’s Assistant Professor and Hospitalist Sosena Kebede, MD, MPH, has been appointed to a core faculty position in the new Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. The aim of the Institute is “reducing preventable harm to patients, advancing the science of safety, and improving clinical and patient-reported outcomes at the lowest possible cost.” Faculty members of the Armstrong Institute are drawn from various departments across the Schools of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing.
Dr. Kebede will join Eric Bass, MD, MPH and Lisa Cooper, MD, MPH in representing GIM as core faculty of the Armstrong Institute. Their responsibilities in the Institute may entail advising on quality and safety projects within the Johns Hopkins Health System, participating in grants and contracts with other faculty members, contributing to program development, directing or teaching institute-sponsored courses, mentoring students, trainees and other faculty members, among other roles.
Congratulations to Dr. Kebede on contributing to this exciting new endeavor!
