    Sarah B. Garrett, PhD, is a medical and cultural sociologist. As of May 2020 she is a Health Policy Fellow at the Phillip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (IHPS) at UCSF. She received a PhD in Sociology from the University of California, Berkeley.

    Prior to being a Fellow, Sarah worked in the Division of Geriatrics and at IHPS. In Geriatrics she helped to design, conduct and analyze mixed-methods research on the experiences and needs of individuals with dementia and their caregivers; on older adults' experience managing chronic pain during the "opioid epidemic"; and on how hospice staff navigate patients' and families' preferences for aggressive care. At IHPS Sarah is a part of the Medical Cultures Lab, a newly established social science “laboratory” that is focused on several related initiatives examining the role of culture in the world of medicine. There she works to improve methods of analyzing, presenting, and sharing qualitative data in order to make these data more useful in patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). Sarah has also contributed research and project direction to an NIH-funded study on cancer patients' understanding of and decision-making about participation in early phase clinical trials; and a CTSI-funded study on the ways in which lay Californians perceive the risks and benefits of human tissue biobanking.

    For her NSF-funded doctoral research, Sarah conducted a longitudinal study on the ways in which a diverse group of pregnant women in the San Francisco Bay Area perceived prenatal care and birth care options; the origins of those perceptions; and how the perceptions affected their decision-making and postpartum mental health. She collected and analyzed original quantitative (n = 325) and qualitative (n = 67) data for the study. Results have been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national conferences.
