Description

We are delighted to announce that Margot Kushel, MD has been selected as this year's recipient of the Harold S. Luft Award for Mentoring in Health Services and Health Policy Research, awarded by the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies.

Margot Kushel, MD is a Professor of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco in the Division of General Internal Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. She was just named new Director of UCSF’s Center for Vulnerable Populations and she is also a faculty affiliate of the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies. Margot's research focuses on the causes and consequences of homelessness and housing instability, with the goal of preventing and ending homelessness, and ameliorating the effects of homelessness on health through informing clinical practice, programs, and policies. One of her current studies is looking at the causes and consequences of geriatric conditions in older homeless adults and the role of family in rehousing older homeless adults.

In addition to her research, Margot has a K24 mentoring grant from the National Institute of Aging, is the Principal Investigator of a T32 training grant and directs the UCSF Primary Care Research Fellowship that trains primary care physicians to conduct policy-oriented research. She maintains an active clinical practice at the Richard Fine People’s Clinic at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and attends on the inpatient medicine service. She speaks at local, state and national meetings about issues of homelessness, and frequently provides testimony to legislative bodies. Margot obtained her AB from Harvard, her MD from Yale, and completed her residency and chief residency in Internal Medicine and her fellowship in General Internal Medicine at UCSF.
