Hazar Khidir, MD
Research & Publications
Dr. Hazar Khidir completed her undergraduate studies in Sociology/Anthropology and Biology at Truman State University. She then attended Harvard Medical School where she obtained her Doctor of Medicine and completed her clinical residency in emergency medicine at the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Dr. Khidir is a first-generation American. Her experiences of migration have inspired the main question at the center at her scholarly work: Why is it that accidents of geography and birth are what determine how nourished, educated, and healthy one is?
Most recently, her work has focused on structural intersectionality, how intersecting systems of oppression shape health and result in overlapping geographic, racial and ethnic, and socioeconomic health inequities. She is also interested in the use of value-based delivery tools like quality measurement to incentivize health care systems to advance health equity and reduce health disparities.
