(Kelvin Memeh MD) #777

Hi everyone, my name is Kelvin Memeh and I am an Endocrine and General surgeon with an academic interest in surgical outcomes and health economic research. I am currently completing a Masters’s degree in Public Health Sciences with an emphasis in Health Data Science. I have been involved in some clinical studies using the SEER and NCDB databases and have enjoyed the insights from those “population-level” datasets. I have also published some health economics research.
Given my clinical and research background, I am interested in finding evidence-based solutions to clinical questions especially pertaining to endocrine and neuroendocrine disorders, using large datasets.
My contribution to the community will be in the areas of clinical research designs, data analysis, and writing research papers.
When I am not researching or operating, I am catching up with Health tech news, experimenting with cooking/recipes, running, or relaxing with a glass of Cabernet or Bourbon.

I am happy to connect! Please shoot me an email on my LinkedIn or on Twitter @drmemeh
