Brittany Ricci has been involved in clinical research on various levels from large clinical trials to smaller retrospective qualitative studies. As a clinical research assistant in Rhode Island Hospital’s Department of Emergency Neurosciences, she was mainly involved in patient recruitment and education. As a medical student, she has designed, executed, and published multiple patient-centered research projects with the hopes of improving care for patients and providing data from which clinicians and providers can make more informed clinical decisions. Ricci is currently working with a researcher at the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation on a patient-centered research project under its IBD Qorus quality improvement initiative. Ricci holds a bachelor's degree in biology and is working to complete a medical doctorate. She will begin residency in internal medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in July 2020. She is committed to bringing her unique perspective as a physician and patient to advocacy and patient empowerment efforts.
