Utibe R. Essien, MD, MPHM, has been selected to receive a Young Investigator Database Seed Grant to utilize data from Get With The GuidelinesĀ® (GWTG) for his research on the association of race/ethnicity and oral anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation. Dr. Essien is an Assistant Professor of Medicine, the CEED-II Program Co-Director and a trainee in the Career Education and Enhancement for Health Care Research Diversity Program (CEED).

Get With The GuidelinesĀ® (GWTG) is a hospital-based quality improvement program designed to close the treatment gap in cardiovascular disease, stroke, and resuscitation.
