Dr. Mangurian is a community psychiatrist whose NIH-funded research program focuses on improving diabetes screening and HIV care of people with severe mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder), particularly among underserved minority populations.
Dr. Mangurian has a successful track record in implementation in the public sector, most notably being her work as a Special Coordinator for the Medical Director of the New York State Office of Mental Health to implement health screening of 15,000 outpatients served within the New York State public mental health system (Mangurian et al., 2010). With her prior NIDDK-funded grant (Diabetes screening and care received by the mentally ill in an integrated system), Dr. Mangurian has partnered with Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research to leverage Kaiser’s tremendous EHR to examine patient-, provider- and clinic-level variables that might influence diabetes care in this vulnerable population. Her current NIMH-funded R01 focuses on improving the HIV care of people with schizophrenia nationally.
In addition to her research experience, Dr. Mangurian is the Director and co-Founder of the UCSF Public Psychiatry Fellowship at San Francisco General Hospital.
