Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert has been elected to the board of the Society for Medical Decision Making, an international organization that promotes medical decision science and works with hospitals, universities, corporations and governments agencies around the world.

Goldhaber-Fiebert, an associate professor of medicine at Stanford Health Policy, teaches several health policy classes on infectious disease and decision science, and is heading up some key COVID-19 mathematical simulation models for the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He likens SMDM to a second home, having been involved with the society for 15 years and mentoring Stanford students and trainees who present their research at its annal conference.

“SMDM has been bringing together the global methodological leaders in decision science for health and medicine for decades,” he said. “The way the branches of decision science are practiced and applied all grow out from the trailblazing work of SMDM members and collaborations fostered by the society — I am very proud to serve on its board as secretary-treasurer.”

The society’s 42nd Annual North American Meeting will be held virtually next month, focusing on relationships in medical decision making. Goldhaber-Fiebert will be teaching short courses, presenting his own work and supporting the presentations of 11 other abstracts — including 10 with trainees.
