The Scholarship was established by SHEA to promote the training of outstanding infectious disease fellows who demonstrate interest in the field of healthcare epidemiology.
In January 2017, Jason presented his work on readmissions in patients with multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) infections at the CDC Epicenters Workgroup meeting in Atlanta, GA. CDC’s Prevention Epicenters Program is a unique research program in which CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP) collaborates with academic investigators to conduct innovative infection control and prevention research. Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis (WU), Barnes-Jewish Hospital (BJH), and BJC Healthcare (WU/BJC Epicenter) is among 11 epicenters nationally.
In addition, Jason recently received a “Just-in-Time ” award, funded by the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences. His project is “Critical Care and Infectious Diseases: A Survey Study Addressing Attitudes Toward Collaboration”.
