Dr. Delgado is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Epidemiology with tenure at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the director of the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit, the world’s first behavioral design team embedded within a health system. He is also an attending physician in the emergency department at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, an associate director at the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics, and co-chair of Penn Medicine's opioid task force.Dr. Delgado's research blends behavioral and data science with insights gleaned from practicing emergency medicine in an urban trauma center to guide patients and clinicians toward decisions that enhance personal safety and improve the quality of acute care. He is passionate about leading multidisciplinary teams to address pressing public health problems. His portfolio includes work to curb the opioid overdose crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, reduce trauma and firearm injuries, and decrease distracted and alcohol-impaired driving.Consistent throughout Dr. Delgado's work is an effort to redesign choice environments to make the safe choice the easy and more attractive choice. To this end, he uses a broad set of methodological approaches, including user centered design methods, observational comparative effectiveness methods for analyzing hospital encounter data, and pragmatic randomized trials of digital behavioral interventions delivered via electronic health records, automated text messaging, and smartphone apps. He is a leader in learning health systems research. Many of the interventions his teams have developed and implemented have been scaled as the standard of care. His achievements have been recognized with the Marjorie A. Bowman New Investigator Research Award and the Academy Health Publication-of-the-Year Award. He received his bachelor's degree in public policy from Princeton University, his medical degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, and his master's degree in health services research from Stanford University.
