Teaching Narrative

The central goal of my teaching is to promote transdisciplinary approaches to understanding the
problems of health and health care delivery. I believe that this is the only way to get any real
traction on the complexities of our health care system, as well as the global challenges of
growing disease burden and health inequality. This commitment explains why I teach courses
and lecture in such a wide range of venues—from the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy
Studies (PRL-IHPS), to UCSF’s Clinical and Translation Science Institute (CTSI), to the School
of Nursing’s health policy curriculum, the Medical School’s Intersession and Health and Society
Pathway, and the UC Berkeley Sociology Department and School of Public Health. It is also
why the students I closely mentor have spanned so many academic disciplines, including
medicine, nursing, pharmacy, clinical psychology, epidemiology, public health, social welfare,
public policy, history, management, law, anthropology and sociology.

While I believe that there is an important place for didactic classroom teaching, I find that
students develop the skills they need to become independent scientists more quickly and
thoroughly when they learn by doing. My mentoring follows an apprenticeship model in which

                                               16
                                                                             Laura Anne Schmidt


students are often supported in part or whole by my research grants. This gives them ready
access to data, and integrates them into larger interdisciplinary teams with my co-investigators,
allowing them to learn from multiple mentors. Over time, this model has allowed my students to
develop a wider range of research skills, and to publish more often and earlier in their careers.
And with my mentorship in grant writing, a growing number are becoming successful new
investigators with their own programs of research.


RESEARCH PROGRAM

As an organizational sociologist with masters degrees in public health and social welfare, my
goal is to bridge the worlds of social science and clinical practice in ways that help us better
understand some of the most pressing issues in health and health care today: the widening of
health disparities, health system fragmentation, diminishing access to care and the failure to
translate evidenced-based treatments into routine clinical practice. Substantive areas of my
research include addiction, poverty and health, childhood obesity and disparities in access to
primary and specialty care—all burdens that are profoundly influenced by the organization of
care and the social environment. A hallmark of my research is blended methodologies: I
incorporate historical-archival, ethnographic and quantitative methods into most of my studies as
a way to cross-validate findings and better interpret their meaning. Since its inception, my
research program has been stably funded through awards from the National Institutes of Health
(NIH) and US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, in combination with
funding from private foundations, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and
Commonwealth Fund.

My work on health and systems of care spans domestic and international collaborations. On the
domestic front, since 1999, I have served as Principal Investigator for the Welfare Client
Longitudinal Study (WCLS), which links five annual waves of survey data on the health of 718
California welfare recipients with qualitative data on the changing organizations that serve them.
The WCLS team, which has included 22 scientific staff of wide-ranging ranks and disciplines,
has collectively produced over 90 scientific presentations and publications, 3 UC Berkeley
dissertations, and 6 funded spin-off studies focusing on homelessness, poverty and violence,
child welfare, and the intergovernmental dynamics of welfare reform policies affecting health.
In a related line of research with colleagues at the Alcohol Research Group and Brandeis
University, I have used large national surveys to tease apart how the financing and organization
of care give rise to the significant under-utilization of addiction treatment that we see today.
Related work under a new R01 grant focuses on disentangling socioeconomic and racial/ethnic
disparities in access to appropriate care for addiction treatment. This is the culmination of a
several years of effort publishing review papers, empirical analyses, and involvement in strategic
planning efforts on these issues sponsored by the NIH and RWJF.

At the global level, my work research program began in the late-90s when I collaborated in the
World Health Organization (WHO)/NIH Joint Project on Diagnosis and Classification of Mental
Disorders, a multinational research effort to cross-culturally study and validate diagnostic
criteria proposed for the International Classification of Diseases, Version 10 (ICD-10). Several
publications from this work demonstrated pronounced cross-cultural variation in conceptions of
addictive disorders and their management, particularly between developing and developed
countries. My current efforts build on this through collaborations with international colleagues
                                               17
                                                                              Laura Anne Schmidt


in four countries on studies of alcohol and development, and service in the Priority Public
Health Conditions Knowledge Network (PPHC-KN) of the UN/WHO Commission on the Social
Determinants of Health. The PPHC-KN seeks to develop novel, pragmatic for creating better
social conditions for health worldwide in pursuit of the UN-chartered Millennium Development
Goals. As lead author on work by the Alcohol Programme Node, I have helped bring together
what we already know about effective policies for reducing the alcohol-attributable global
burden of disease with new thinking about novel, untried interventions. I have carried my
experience with the PPHC-KN back to UCSF in collaborations with Robert Lustig MD in
Pediatrics, with whom I am studying how lessons learned from international alcohol control
policy can inform efforts to address childhood obesity through policies targeting sugar
consumption.

Throughout, my investigations have shown that health care institutions at the domestic and
international levels can offer solutions to health inequality and other pressing concerns, but that
they are often also part of the problems. My book manuscript, Building the Health Care Market,
unpacks the political process and motives that gave rise to our current health care market
between 1965 and 1996. It shows how an unplanned, incremental process of institutional change
from the bottom up has inadvertently deepened health inequality and given rise to our current
dynamic of rising uninsured. Understanding how our current problems came about puts us in a
better position guide health care systems in how to do better. Doing so is a current focus on my
work. In a new study with UCSF’s Diane Rittenhouse MD in Community and Family Medicine,
we are trying to understand how best to strategically rebuild the primary care infrastructure in
post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans. In a similar vein, my work with UCSF’s Clinical and
Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Health Policy Program pursues for using organizational
and financial levers to promote the adoption of evidence-based medical pratices. And my work
with the RWJF’s national quality improvement initiative, Advancing Recovery, is developing
new organizational models for partnerships between service providers and government funders
to promote evidence-based addiction treatment.
