Jason Wilson, MD, PhD, CPE, FACEP is an academic healthcare leader and medical anthropologist with an interest in developing patient-centered pathways that are medically efficacious but also consider the role of structural and cultural forces in determining health inequities and disparities.

Current work includes the creation of syndemic interventions to solve complex healthcare problems, the development and treatment of anticoagulation and bleed reversal pathways, pathways that improve the ED based treatment of patients with sickle cell disease, HIV/HCV screening, HIV/HCV linkage and expansion of harm reduction programs to identify, link, and/or treat HIV and HCV even in the emergency department and proximate community through ED based prehospital programs, as well as the stabilization and linkage to care of patients with opioid use and other substance use disorders.
