    Dr. Raymond-Flesch is an Assistant Professor 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. Her 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 prior research focused on health care access for California’s young undocumented immigrant 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. She is also partnering with researchers investigating the health and health care access of Asian and Pacific Islander immigrants without documentation to compare and contrast the health concerns and access for these groups. Dr. Raymond-Flesch’s subsequent research investigated how Medi-Cal eligibility changes that are occurring as a result of the Affordable Care Act and shifting immigration policy, are communicated to and implemented by Medi-Cal enrollment workers.

    Dr. Raymond-Flesch's current research, conducted in partnership with colleagues from RTI, UC Berkeley, and the Monterey County Health Department, examines the relationship between gang violence, unintended teen pregnancies, and mental health in Salinas, California - a small, predominantly Latino community in California’s rural central coast. Although some research has examined the association between violence and teen pregnancies in large urban centers, little is known about this association in rural communities. Formative work from this investigation highlighted the critical role that family plays in positive youth development and reproductive health knowledge. This formative work, and the community engagement associated with it, also revealed wide-spread concern about the mental health of Salinas youth. This data has informed the development of "A Crecer: The Salinas Teen Health Study," a longitudinal survey of 600 early adolescents in Salinas.
