Hilary Seligman, MD, MAS is Assistant Professor in Residence at the University of California San Francisco with a primary appointment in the Division of General Internal Medicine and a secondary appointment in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. She is also Core Faculty for UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations at San Francisco General Hospital, the city’s public hospital. As a general internist, Dr. Seligman treats outpatients and inpatients at San Francisco General Hospital. As a researcher, her work focuses on the intersection between food insecurity and health, particularly the prevention and management of chronic disease. Through a combination of community-based, clinic-based, and epidemiologic studies, she seeks to understand the tight connections between food insecurity and ill health, and to develop and test interventions designed to improve health by increasing food access and affordability. Her research has appeared in New England Journal of Medicine, Archives of Internal Medicine, Journal of Nutrition, Diabetes Care, and Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, among others. She regularly speaks about the public health implications of food insecurity to local, regional, and national audiences. Her policy and advocacy expertise focus on federal nutrition programs (such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), food affordability and access, and income-related drivers of food choice.
Dr. Seligman also develops patient education materials targeted toward patients with limited health literacy. These materials focus on chronic conditions with high self-management requirements (http://www.acpfoundation.org/materials-and-guides/patient-guides/).
Dr. Seligman completed her undergraduate studies at Williams College and received her MD degree from Baylor College of Medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency and a Masters of Advanced Studies in Clinical Research at UCSF. Dr. Seligman also serves on the Board of Directors for California Food Policy Advocates and the San Francisco and Marin Food Bank.
