    Collapse overview
    Dr. Raymond-Flesch is a fellow in the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (IHPS) and the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine within the Department of Pediatrics. She completed her undergraduate training at MIT and her medical training at Cornell University. Her interests in adolescent medicine and public health policy led her to do a Masters of Public Health in Population and Family Health at Columbia University. She then completed her residency and chief residency at Mount Sinai Hospital’s Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Program with a focus on global health.

    Dr. Raymond-Flesch’s research focuses on access to care for adolescents and young adults with a particular interest in in improving reproductive health access for minority and border communities. She is especially interested in using community-based participatory research to bring health care and health education into these underserved communities.

    Dr. Raymond-Flesch’s first fellowship project was a needs assessment of reproductive health care access on the Mexico/New Mexico border, conducted in partnership with a local NGO. More recently she has focused on health care access for California’s undocumented population, working with a team from IHPS, UC Berkeley, and UCLA to study the health concerns and health care access of California’s DREAMers, or young immigrants eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. This work identified the profound need for improved access to medical, and particularly, mental health care, for this vulnerable community. Policy briefs with the results of this work are available online (http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/healthcare/DACA_health_access.shtml and http://laborcenter.berkeley.edu/healthcare/DACA_health_coverage.shtml).

    Dr. Raymond-Flesch’s current project is an extension of this work, examining how Med-i-Cal eligibility changes, occurring as a result of the Affordable Care Act and shifting immigration policy, are communicated to and implemented by Med-i-Cal enrollment workers. This project is ongoing, with the goal of improving dissemination of health care eligibility information, and ultimately improving access to care for California’s underinsured populations.
