    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Hargrave is a general internist who is committed to a career in patient-oriented research aimed at improving health outcomes for people who have experienced trauma through identifying and addressing gaps in care using implementation science strategies. As a fellow in the National Clinicians Scholars Program (NCSP) she used qualitative and quantitative methods to characterize the impact of trauma and interpersonal violence on health and health equity. This work included evaluating the association between trauma and PTSD with cardiovascular disease (CVD). CVD is the leading cause of death and disability for women in the U.S. and yet, many women have inadequate control of traditional CVD risk factors. As a BIRCWH K-12 Scholar, Dr. Hargrave will evaluate the impact of trauma and other patient and system-level characteristics on treatment patterns and prevalence of CVD risk factors. Dr. Hargrave is also a faculty member of the Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative (BHHI), where her work focuses on analyzing the intersection of violence and homelessness in the California Statewide Study of Homelessness. She is also leading the COMPASS Study through the Center to Advance Trauma Informed Health Care (CTHC), which is a qualitative analysis of communication and relationship building between providers and their patients who have histories of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and adult traumas.
