Dr. Demetria
I offer consulting services, research partnerships, as well as speaking and workshop facilitation services. I believe that through honest, respectful, and considerate research, everyone can receive equitable health care regardless of where we live, work, play, or worship.
Speaking & Workshop Facilitation
Health Care Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Lean start-up principles in entrepreneurship mean that start-ups implement solutions for existing problems rather than create products or services for perceived demand.

This workshop will review the unlikely similarities between entrepreneurship and health care and how the inclusion of business and entrepreneurship principles is necessary for long-term success in health care.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Identify components of the business model within their respective institutional settings

2. Understand how these components influence the way health care is managed and delivered

Equitable Health Care is Not Just About Race and Ethnicity

Participants of this workshop will review the sociocultural and institutional factors that impede equitable health care and explore potential solutions and future challenges.

The workshop engages participants to critically evaluate how sociocultural and institutional factors can influence equitable health care delivery in their respective institutions. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Identify how sociocultural and institutional factors may affect the delivery of equitable health care

2. Understand how these factors influence outcomes in their own institutions

Scale and Sustain

Scalability and sustainability in health care are both significant and challenging. This workshop provides the opportunity to create hard and soft measures of performance that align with effective program scale and sustainability strategies. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Define scale and sustainability and understand key considerations in its measurement

2. Explain why scale and sustainability are essential from the perspective of key partners and stakeholders

3. Understand the relationship between scale, sustainability, and equity in health care

(Lack of) Health Communication is Costly

The lack of communication about health and health care costs both money and lives. In this workshop, participants examine the elements of health communication and identify strategies that can improve outcomes in their respective settings. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Define aspects of health communication and understand its impact on health and well-being.

2. Identify effective health communication strategies and actionable information that people can easily understand and incorporate into practice.

In my consulting and partnership services, I aim to help align stakeholder interests in health care organizations and expand the fields of Dissemination and Implementation Science. I want to show individuals and corporations how they can play a part in systematically improving healthcare communication and dismantling structural racism in all healthcare settings.
