Scott M. Strayer, MD, MPH
Department of Family Medicine
University of Virginia Health System
Dr. Strayer is a family physician with clinical, research and teaching experience in smoking cessation counseling and use of medical informatics in practice. He is a board-certified family physician who is currently an Associate Professor with appointments in the Departments of Family Medicine and Health Evaluation Sciences at the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottesville, Virginia. He attended medical school at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and completed his residency in Family Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University's Hanover Family Practice Program. Subsequently, he served four years in the United States Air Force and held an appointment at the Saint Louis University Family Practice University concurrently. During this time, he pioneered one of the first Family Medicine Residency handheld computer programs in the country and began speaking nationally on the topic of handheld computers in medicine. In 2001, he was nominated as one of four finalists in Microsoft's Physician of the Year awards for this work with handheld computers in medicine. He also completed a Masters of Public Health during his time in St. Louis. In addition to authoring a book and chapter on handheld computers in medicine, Dr. Strayer has published several peer-reviewed publications in cancer diagnosis and prevention and other primary care topics.
His interest in cancer prevention and smoking cessation led him to develop the first point-of-care smoking cessation counseling handheld software program which is now available at the National Cancer Institute's smoking cessation website. This innovative use of computers in practice has led to grant awards from the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, totaling over $2m. The latest iteration of this tool, QuitAdvisorMD is being used throughout the country to assist physicians and practices with implementation of the 2008 Public Health Service smoking cessation guidelines. He is a past recipient of the American Cancer Society's Cancer Control Career Development Award in primary care. He was also a Robert Wood Johnson "Prescription for Health" grant recipient and is active in a practice that was part of the AAFP's national TransforMED demonstration project for improving practice.
Future Trends and Opportunities in Health Care for Libraries
Saturday, 9:45am - 11am
Daniel Masys, MD
Professor and Chair
Department of Biomedical Informatics
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
Modern health care is built upon the collapsing paradigm of a 1000-year-old model of medical reasoning and education. National studies of the frequency of medical errors have revealed the widespread lack of a systems approach in health care delivery. The problem becomes dramatically worse as the era of “data intensive biology” arising from the human genome project overtakes clinicians who are accustomed to working on the basis of what they remember and have personally experienced. This talk will trace the trends in information technologies and biomedical science that are converging on health care and will lead to opportunity, promise, and peril in the 21st century.
Dr. Daniel R. Masys is Professor and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics. Previously, he served as Director of Biomedical Informatics at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, Professor of Medicine and Director of the UCSD Human Research Protections Program. An honors graduate of Princeton University and the Ohio State University College of Medicine, he completed postgraduate training in Internal Medicine, Hematology, and Medical Oncology at the University of California, San Diego, and the Naval Regional Medical Center, San Diego. He served as Chief of the International Cancer Research Data Bank of the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, and from 1986 through 1994 was Director of the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, which is the computer research and development division of the National Library of Medicine. In this capacity, he was the principal architect of the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which hosts the data from the Human Genome Project and other resources and tools for molecular biology.
Dr. Masys's research interests are in the areas of informatics support for international HIV clinical research, genome-phenome correlation using DNA biobanks and de-identified clinical data extracted from electronic medical records, and creation and evaluation of tools to facilitate clinical and translational research.
Health Care in Memphis as Reflected in Its Past
Sunday, 9:00am - 10:30am
Mr. Bearden's is an acclaimed Memphis author and filmmaker whose career has revolved around the importance of documenting the world we live, in effect recording in picture and video the world that we live in today for the history that will be written about in the future. He is knowledgeable about Memphis city life and the role that cotton, the delta, and the blues have played in the history of Memphis. The Memphis Legacy Project is the group started by him where the results of his photography, writing, and video work are organized to be placed in libraries and archives for future viewing. He is the author of Cotton: From Southern Fields to the Memphis Market and Memphis Blues: Birthplace of a Music Tradition.
Seamlessly Working the “I” into an Academic Medical Center Workflow: the Eskind Biomedical Library Experience
Saturday, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Librarians’ public service know-how and understanding of high-level research principles are showcased in this presentation as a demonstration of how an academic medical library has managed to truly integrate as equal partners in the accomplishment of its medical center’s strategic goals. With the implementation of a philosophy of life-long learning, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Annette and Irwin Eskind Biomedical Library (EBL) has built a culture of supporting mentorship and skills development in expert searching, critical appraisal, and filtering of the biomedical literature. This culture, combined with a highly proactive philosophical framework, drives the EBL’s efforts to integrate information seamlessly within the medical center and cements the library’s position as a central component of the institution’s information infrastructure. After a quick introduction of the library’s philosophy and implementation of life-long learning, the team will illustrate through concrete examples of projects and services how their integration into patient care, education, and research has made the EBL a key academic medical center partner.

Library Survival in Hard Economic Times
Saturday, 3:00pm - 4:15pm
We are increasingly hearing stories regarding negative fiscal impacts on our institutions. Panelists will discuss the effects of the current economic downturn on their libraries, what they have done in response, how basic functions have been affected, what strategies have been successful, and what opportunities (if any) have arisen. Each panelist will present for 7-10 minutes, followed by questions from the audience after all have presented.
