Trauma Informed Health Care Education and Research (TIHCER) Collaborative Presenter: Maurice E. Hicks Jr., Medical and MBA Student at U of Minnesota
During this session, Mo will briefly introduce some of the novel ways he has approached building trauma-informed care solutions, before using the rest of the hour to facilitate a discussion on considerations and barriers to TIC implementation.
Bio: After graduating from Carleton College with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, Mo gained valuable, hands-on experience working on child & adolescent psychiatric units. The inequitable, traumatizing care he observed drove him to pursue a career in medicine with the hopes of promoting more equitable, trauma-informed, patient-centered care on a systemic level. As an MD-MBA student, Maurice has pursued this dream by starting and leading two nonprofits committed to mentorship and trauma-informed care of vulnerable populations while also conducting quality improvement research to further his knowledge of the system he hopes to influence. Through the recent establishment of Vertex Medical Solutions Inc., a health tech startup with a focus on addressing psychosocial risk factors, Mo hopes to provide innovative solutions to address disparities in medicine.
