    Sanjay Arora, MD is an Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. He completed his clinical training at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2005 and joined the faculty at USC where he currently serves as the Chief of the Research Division in Emergency Medicine. He is also a clinical fellow at the Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics and is a faculty mentor at the USC Resource Center for Minority Aging Research. Additionally he is the Director of the research fellowship at USC, Director of the research education and dissemination fellowship at USC, and Director of the undergraduate/ medical student emergency medicine research program in his department. His research area of interest is utilizing emerging technology to improve the quality and efficacy of emergency care, and to bridge the gap between an emergency department visit and a stable outpatient medical home for low-income, inner city patients with chronic disease. As chronic disease and its impact on the emergency department is a large topic, he has focused his efforts on diabetes and HIV as model diseases on which to evaluate interventions centered largely around improving appointment and medication adherence. His work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), CAL/ACEP Emergency Medicine Research and Education Foundation (EMREF), the McKesson Foundation, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute (SC CTSI), Gilead Sciences, the Office of AIDS Programs and Prevention, and the California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP). In 2015 he was named the top section editor by the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine and the received the Required Scholarly Project Mentor of the Year award from the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. In addition to conducting research, he is a prominent educator in his field and received the speaker of the year award at both of the largest national conferences in emergency medicine (the American College of Emergency Physicians Scientific Assembly and the Essentials of Emergency Medicine) in 2011.
