Meet Our Team


Our team at the University of California Merced is dedicated to helping conduct and translate health services research to Public Health Departments and other community organizations in Rural And Underserved Areas of California, including the San Joaquin Valley and Mountain Communities of California. Our team:

  • Conducts high-quality analysis by applying the latest developments in health services research and health economics;
  • Uses the outcomes from our work to help develop health policies and improve decision making at the local and state level;
  • Provides informed commentary to the community debate on health policy relevant to our communities;
  • Enhances the level of analysis in the region through our training and educational programs; and
  • Disseminates and translates the work to the communities and policymakers.

We focus on the challenges facing communities in rural and medically underserved areas, including those due to physician shortages, lack of access to healthcare, and the prevention of chronic diseases. The team is based in the Translational Research Center at the University of California at Merced.
