Winter 2023 Featured Trainee:

David Manning

  • Senior at Tufts University’s School of Arts and Sciences working with Levy CIMAR investigator Dr. Alysse Wurcel on researching the implementation of antimicrobial stewardship programs in state prisons and jails.
  • Recipient of the 2023 Levy CIMAR Undergraduate Summer Internship in Science and Medicine

David Manning is a senior at Tufts University’s Undergraduate School of Arts and Sciences studying Biology and Community Health, and was one of two scholars chosen for the 2023 Levy CIMAR Undergraduate Summer Internship in Science and Medicine. This summer and fall, David worked under the mentorship of the Levy CIMAR’s Alysse Wurcel, MD, an attending physician at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. Dr. Wurcel studies issues of equity and ways to combat antibiotic resistance in carceral settings.

David assisted Dr. Wurcel in research focusing on the implementation of antimicrobial stewardship programs in state prisons and jails. He contributed to identifying patient, clinician, and institutional factors associated with increased prescribing of antibiotics of concern in New England jails and prisons. David also qualitatively coded interviews from incarcerated individuals, jail clinicians, jail administrators, and community clinicians to help identify overall themes across carceral stakeholders who have the power to enact change in the name of equity.

Prior to joining Dr. Wurcel and her team, David worked as an undergraduate research assistant in the Research on Ethics, Aging, and Community Health Lab at Tufts University where he assisted in writing a systematic review on the topic of bias in clinical prediction models in medicine.

David plans to attend medical school and to eventually become a scientist-practitioner in the fields of medicine and public health. He aspires to advance the holistic care of underserved and diverse populations and use individual and community assets as well as strength-based approaches to facilitate wellness.

David enjoys learning, in particular researching global health and health ethics with an emphasis on with racial disparities. Outside of scholarly activities, he enjoys running on Tufts University’s track and cross-country teams, reading autobiographies, and taking care of his plants.
