Emily Chen

Emily is a research assistant at the Health Decision Sciences Center, as well as a senior (class of 2021) at Dartmouth College pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience and Global Health. She has provided assistance on multiple projects at the HDSC, but she mainly focuses on providing support to a shared decision-making study investigating patient-provider conversations with regards to colorectal screening in older adults. With the onset of COVID-19, Emily also currently assists on another study that examines patient preferences in rescheduling colonoscopies that were delayed due to COVID-19.

Her interests include investigating shared decision-making in the context of bridging health disparities and promoting individualized patient care that emphasizes every patient’s priorities.
