Fasiha Kanwal, MD, MSHS

Dr. Fasiha Kanwal is Associate Professor of Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine (TX) in association with the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center and is the Principal Health Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) Specialist for the UCLA/VA Center for Outcomes Research and Education. Dr. Kanwal received her medical training in Pakistan, and subsequently gained advanced training in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at UCLA. She received a Master's Degree in Health Services through the UCLA School of Public Health, with a special emphasis in biostatistics and HRQOL research.

Dr. Kanwal's research interests include HRQOL in Hepatitis C/HIV co-infected individuals, the impact of the Mayo End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) score on transplantation outcomes, and the cost-effectiveness of competing management strategies in Hepatitis B. Along with other members of the Center, Dr. Kanwal has helped to refine methods to retrospectively estimate the minimially clinically important difference, or "MCID," for HRQOL scales. She has published widely in several high-impact journals, including Annals of Internal Medicine, Hepatology, and the American Journal of Gastroenterology, among others. Dr. Kanwal has received research support from the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) to study methods of measuring HRQOL in chronic liver disease.
