Dermatology: Health Care's 'Canary in the Coal Mine' and Incubator for Epidemiologic Research

Dr. Secrest is an Instructor in the Departments of Dermatology and Population Health Sciences at the University of Utah. He received his medical and research training at the University of Pittsburgh, earning a master's degree in Public Health and a PhD in epidemiology. His academic interests are increasingly focused around patient‐centered care and outcomes. He is currently developing a system‐wide tablet‐based platorm to collect patient reported outcomes data for all dermatologic conditions at every patient visit at the University of Utah Clinics. This information from patients will be invaluable in optimizing care and treatment algorithms in dermatology and understanding and recognizing the extent to which patients' skin disorders affect their daily lives. His dermatology research has centered around patient motivations and preferences with care, as well as the problem of increasing medication costs to the patient and the healthcare system overall. He successfully obtained an NIH training grant during his MD/PhD training. He has co‐authored more than 35 journal articles and a book chapter in the NIH publication Diabetes in America. Dr. Secrest is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology's Drug Pricing and Transparency Task Force. He also serves as a reviewer for several journals, including JAMA Dermatology. He is deeply committed to mentoring and training faculty, residents, and medical students in clinical and epidemiologic research.
