From Molecular Epidemiology to Medical Anthropology: Trust in the Time of MRSA-BKV

Presented by:

Rebecca E. Rosenberg, MD, MPH, FAAP

Associate Professor of Pediatrics, NYU School of Medicine, Chief, Section of Pediatric Hospital Medicine, Pediatric Hospitalist, Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone

Summary of Session Goals:

This research in progress discussion will provide a brief overview of community-acquired methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) epidemiology, followed by application of qualitative research in endemic CA-MRSA among children in an insular community to identify both local risk factors and generate hypotheses about etiology, prevention and treatment of CA-MRSA colonization and infection.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand basic clinical aspects of CA-MRSA transmission, colonization and infection
2. Appreciate role of qualitative methods in translational research as applied to a case study of endemic CA-MRSA
3. Identify opportunities for meaningful community engagement as part of research to improve population health
