According to the CDC, in 2020, suicide was the fourth leading cause of traumatic injury death for people under the age of 65. A CNN op-ed written by Keith Magee titled, “Why we should all care about Black men’s mental health”, identified that “from 2014 to 2019, Black people had the largest percentage increase of any ethnic group in suicide death rates — a rise of 30%”. There is concern especially for Black children and teenagers ages 5-19, who are twice as likely to die by suicide as their White peers.
If you or someone you know are living with suicidal thoughts, call or text 988. Help is available.
Bharti Khurana, MD, Awarded $3.2M NIH Grant to Develop Clinical Tool for Identifying Signs of Intimate Partner Violence on Imaging
Bharti Khurana, MD, was awarded a four-year, $3.2 million grant for her project “Making the Invisible Visible: An Automated Clinical Decision Support Tool for Intimate Partner Violence Risk and Severity Prediction (AIRS)”. With the funding, Dr. Khurana seeks to develop a tool that will allow radiologists to easily identify patients who have experienced intimate partner violence (IPV) using historical radiological and clinical data.
