Nicky Mehtani, MD
Dr. Mehtani is a second year internal medicine resident at Johns Hopkins Hospital. After studying Global Health Technologies as an undergraduate at Rice University, she pursued a medical degree at Johns Hopkins, where she also earned her MPH at the Bloomberg School of Public Health. As an MPH and medical student, she worked with Dr. Kathleen Page in 2015-2016, analyzing Baltimore City STI surveillance data to help understand the initial effects of the Affordable Care Act on the demand for publicly-funded STD Clinics, and she continued to work on a three-year follow-up study of this issue as a medicine resident.
During residency, Dr. Mehtani spent two months working under Dr. Amita Gupta and Dr. Vidya Mave in Pune, India, where she designed and conducted a retrospective analysis examining time lags between immunologic failure and the transition to second-line treatment among HIV patients visiting a government-sponsored ART clinic. During her time in Pune, she also assisted with two ongoing studies related to food insecurity among HIV patients and loss to follow up among patients being treated for MDR/XDR-TB. Her interests include health systems research, applied epidemiology, and translating research findings into durable policies and interventions.
