Emilia De Marchis is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family & Community Medicine. Her primary interest is in addressing health disparities by assessing and improving screening for and delivery of social services within the health care setting, and adjusting patients' medical care informed by patients' social risk factors. Emilia's research utilizes mixed methods, including secondary analyses of large data sets and analyses of primary collected survey and semi-structured interview data. Through her work, she hopes to better understand how efforts to address health-related social needs within health care impact the health care workforce, patient behavior and health outcomes, and health care utilization and costs. Emilia's clinical experiences as a family medicine physician at UCSF provide the impetus for her work.
