Dr. Poorna Kushalnagar, Special Assistant to the Provost for Research and Director of the Center for Deaf Health Equity, co-authored an article, “Coproduction, Coeducation, and Patient Involvement: Everyone Included Framework for Medical Education Across Age Groups and Cultures” in the Journal of  Medical Internet Research. Her co-authors include the Executive Director of Stanford Medicine. Together, they adopted an “Everyone Included” perspective and sought to identify its use in continuing medical education, citizen science, marginalized groups, publishing, and student internships. Their article demonstrates co-production with the public across multiple settings and cultures, showing that even with minimal resources and experience, partnerships can improve medical education and care. 

This was Dr. Kushalnagar’s fifth article in this peer-reviewed journal, dating back to 2019. Several other members of the Gallaudet community were co-authors of the earlier articles.
