Meet Whitney Sewell. Dr. Sewell received her doctoral degree in social work from the Brown School of Social Work, at Washington University in St. Louis, and completed a master’s degree in social work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She told us more about her path to her current fellowship, studying under her mentors, and offers advice to up-and-coming doctoral students on how to pave a successful career path.
The rise of antibiotic resistance is a major threat to the practice of medicine and is driven in large part by overuse of antibiotics. In his latest study, Institute faculty member Sanjat Kanjilal and team take on this issue by showing how large-scale machine learning models can be applied to observational electronic health record data to predict antibiotic resistance, make treatment recommendations, and build patient-level and public health models to aid in decision support. We spoke with Dr. Kanjilal to learn more about the study, “A decision algorithm to promote outpatient antimicrobial stewardship for uncomplicated urinary tract infection,” which appears in Science Translational Medicine.
