Family Community Medicine

Linda Remy, PhD, has worked as FHOP's Research Director since 1995 and as a health policy researcher at UCSF since 1989. Linda's research has focused on problems affecting families and children in access to services and outcomes in hospitals, foster care, juvenile detention, jails and prisons, substance abuse, domestic violence, mental health, and cancer. She has been teased about how depressed her computer's hard drive must be. As a methodologist, she specializes in longitudinal population health research, data linkage methods, graphic display of quantitative data, and developing innovative ways to monitor and report population health indicators. She has taught graduate classes in research methods, statistics, and human development in the social environment at several colleges and universities. Before coming to UCSF, she designed information systems and did research and evaluation for a wide variety of non-profit organizations. A person with many interests, Linda co-wrote two highly successful films and was Associate Producer for one of these. She served as a publicly elected Director of the Marin Healthcare District from 1996 to 2000 and has co-founded and served on the boards of numerous community-based organizations. Her undergraduate degree is from New College of California and her graduate degrees (MSW, PhD) are from UC, Berkeley.
