Dbeibo is an assistant professor of clinical medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, and also serves as director of infection prevention at IU Health Methodist Hospital.
In her new role, Dbeibo will contribute to departmental efforts to continuously improve quality, safety and population health for all patients served by IUH and IUHP hospitals and providers.
