Dr. Poorna Kushalnagar, Special Assistant to the Provost for Research and Director of the Center for Deaf Health Equity, co-authored an article, “Coproduction, Coeducation, and Patient Involvement: Everyone Included Framework for Medical Education Across Age Groups and Cultures” in the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

Together, they adopted an “Everyone Included” perspective and sought to identify its use in continuing medical education, citizen science, marginalized groups, publishing, and student internships.
