About the presenter

As an emergency department (ED) physician, Dr. Mashkuri has a special interest in low barrier access to care for people who use drugs.  He has developed and implemented community treatment pathways involving ED based medication assisted treatment and facilitated linkage to follow up care. He works closely with peer recovery specialists embedded in the ED to address the needs of ED patients with substance use disorder. Dr. Mashkuri finds that peers can connect with patients in ways that ED physicians and nurses without lived experience cannot.   Dr. Mashkuri served as Medical Director at the Central Vermont Medical Center Emergency Department from 2016-2021. He is a graduate of the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center College of Medicine in Brooklyn, New York and completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Oregon Health Science University in Portland, Oregon.

Dr. Mashkuri is the owner of Vermont Emergency Addiction Services, LLC.  He consults on treatment pathway models for low barrier point of care addiction services in the Emergency Department.  He is also the Physician Lead for the Central Vermont Prevention Coalition, a community based organization working to provide  prevention, treatment, harm reduction and recovery services to improve the health of Central Vermonters.
