Brief Bios:

Gelareh Sadigh, MD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Sadigh’s major clinical interests include imaging of brain and spine particularly brain neoplasms and white matter diseases. Dr. Sadigh’s research interests include patient preferences, risk communication, and informed decision making. More recently, her work has centered on cost of medical imaging, and how this contributes to financial hardship and healthcare disparity. Her work in these areas has served to identify current gaps in patient-centered healthcare delivery and design interventions to close the disparity gap.

Ritika Manik graduated from Emory University, where she studied Biology and Psychology, in 2021. During her time at Emory, she worked with Dr. Gelareh Sadigh to study brain imaging utilization and patient perception of cost versus quality of care. Currently, she is working as a Measey Scholar at Penn Medicine’s Department of Surgery during her gap year before medical school. Her current research interests include disparities in timely care and outcomes for patients with breast cancer.
