Research Summary

Dr. Alinsky focuses on health services and health systems research on access to addiction treatment for adolescents and young adults. Her fellowship projects included designing, implementing, and evaluating a Quality Improvement project for Pediatric primary care SBIRT (screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment), which led to additional SBIRT in-person and webinar trainings for pediatricians throughout Maryland through the Maryland chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She has investigated healthcare utilization patterns after opioid overdose in adolescents using a large Medicaid dataset, for which she was awarded Best Research Abstract at the 2018 Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Use and Addiction (AMERSA) Conference, and was a finalist for the New Investigator Award at the 2019 Society for Adolescent Health & Medicine (SAHM) Conference. This work, published in JAMA Pediatrics in January 2020, was highlighted in Francis Collins’ NIH Director’s Blog, the Chicago Tribune, US News & World Reports, Reuters, and multiple other national media outlets. Her work describing the availability of adolescent-serving addiction treatment centers throughout the United States and characteristics associated with offering medications for opioid use disorder was recently published in the Journal of Adolescent Health; she was again named a finalist for the New Investigator Award at the 2020 SAHM Conference for this work, and won the 2020 Schwentker Award for Excellence in Research by Fellows and Residents at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
