Elizabeth Burner, MD, MPH, is an Emergency Physician with the USC Department of Emergency Medicine, and the current research fellow. Her current research fellowship is supported by an F32 NRSA grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (1F32DK094547.) She will begin as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine in July 2013 when her fellowship is complete. Her research interests are understanding how cultural experiences interact with health outcomes and exploring new communication technologies to improve health behaviors and healthcare access for medically underserved populations, particularly for inner-city Latino patients with diabetes.
