About the Presenter:
Brandon Yan, MD MPH is a resident physician in the UCSF Department of Medicine dedicated to providing high-quality clinical care and bringing evidence to health policy reform. He earned his MD at the UCSF School of Medicine and trained in policy anaglysis and public health at Duke and Harvard, respectively. Brandon’s academic pursuits broadly investigate how public policy can help improve healthcare access, value, and equity. Cited in major media including the SF Chronicle, LA Times, US News & World Report, Newsweek, and KRON4 News, his publications include those on COVID-19’s impact on Asian Americans, Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), cost-effectiveness of heart failure treatment guidelines, U.S. elections and mental health, and the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion. His research was the first to uncover why reduction in deaths from Medicaid expansion did not translate into reduction in population mortality. He led some of the first work on COVID’s impact on Asian Americans that went on to impact public policy at local, state, and national levels. Brandon further consults on public health policy.
