Research Information

Dr. Dehority's research interests include chronic osteomyelitis and vaccine hesitancy. He is interested in developing a systematic approach to understanding and defining clinical presentations of chronic osteomyelitis. Ultimately, such a framework could be used to design prospective studies to optimize management approaches for this disease. Additionally, he is interested in developing widely-accessible, brief, and engaging point-of-care interventions to educate and foster discussion among vaccine-hesitant individuals, and ultimately, increase vaccine confidence, particularly in rural and underserved populations.
