Elizabeth (Betsy) G. Salazar, MD, is a neonatology fellow at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Her research focuses on how the structures and processes of the perinatal health system influence the quality of care and outcomes of lower-risk, understudied infant populations, such as moderate and late preterm infants. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Molecular Biology with minors in Neuroscience and Global Health and Health Policy from Princeton University. She graduated from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She was a pediatric resident and chief resident at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. As a neonatology fellow and Masters in Health Policy student, Betsy has developed an interest in defining and improving quality of care for moderate and late preterm infants, a prevalent yet understudied NICU population. Under the mentorship of Dr. Scott Lorch and Dr. Sara Handley, Betsy has worked to develop a novel quality measure for moderate and late preterm infants, and has investigated how NICU level of care is associated with quality of care in moderate and late preterm infants.
- Discuss the impact of system structure on quality of care in moderate and late preterm infants
- Describe how structures of care may perform differently for higher and lower risk infants
