We are excited to announce that Dr. Jennifer Potter, Director of LGBT Population Health Program and Co-Chair of The Fenway Institute, will be joining the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Advisory Panel on Healthcare Delivery and Disparities Research (HDDR). She will join other members of the panel in applying her experience and expertise to helping PCORI refine and prioritize the research it funds. She will also ensure that the research PCORI supports centers on the outcomes that matter to patients and other healthcare decision makers.
PCORI is an independent, nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to fund research that will provide patients, their caregivers and clinicians with the evidence-based information needed to make better-informed healthcare decisions.
Dr. Potter was selected on the basis of her experience, expertise and ability to contribute to the panel’s mission. Panel members represent a broad range of healthcare stakeholder groups and perspectives, including patients, family caregivers, clinicians, drug and device makers and researchers, among others. Dr. Potter has extensive clinical, medical education, research, and mentoring experience. She has designed and implemented numerous curricula for health professionals, focused on LGBT health, women’s health, sexual health, cancer survivorship, and care for people with disabilities.
In addition, she co-edited two seminal textbooks on LGBT health (The Fenway Guide to LGBT Health and Trauma, Resilience and Health Promotion in LGBT Patients; What Every Healthcare Provider Should Know), and co-authored an American Association of Medical Colleges’ monograph entitled Implementing Curricular and Institutional Climate Changes to Improve Health Care for Individuals Who are LGBT, Gender Nonconforming, or Born with DSD: A Resource for Medical Educators.
Congratulations on this appointment, Dr. Potter!
