WELCOME NEW FACULTY MEMBER MARY MITSDARFFER!

Dr. Mary Mitsdarffer, new CCRS faculty

​We are proud to announce that Dr. Mary Mitsdarffer has joined the Center for Community Research & Service as an Assistant Professor. Mary, who earned her Ph.D. at Rutgers University, is an interdisciplinary scholar who uses a mix of applied quantitiative, qualitative, and archival methods in her work. Her research interests include the intersection of policy, children's social determinants of health, and life course development. She will be working primarily with the Medicaid Research Program. Please join us in welcoming Mary to CCRS and to the Biden School!

"I am excited to have joined CCRS this fall. As an Assistant Professor at the Biden School and CCRS, I support our ongoing Medicaid partnership and projects. In addition to these pursuits, I am excited to see how my past work and expertise, which focuses on minoritized health disparities, education, and immigration policy, will help launch new research agendas in Delaware. It is my hope that through community collaboration and knowledge I can help to further uncover existing health disparities in Delaware, their driving factors, and intervention strategies to overcome them. I feel very fortunate to join such an amazing team and look forward to helping continue to grow CCRS through engaged research."

- Mary Mitsdarffer

HEALTH POLICY AND RESEARCH

Delaware INBRE logo

​CCRS' Medicaid research program is a member of the Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN), through which 2 papers were published this summer that include analysis of Delaware's state Medicaid claims:

  • Postpartum Follow-up Care for Pregnant Persons With Opiod Use Disorder (in the journal Obstretrics & Gynecology); and
  • Hepatisis C Virus Infection and Design, Implementation, and Evolution of the Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN) (in the journal Medical Care)

MODRN is a part of Academy Health.

The Medicaid Research Program is collaborating with two clinician researchers from Christiana Care health system on two upcoming projects, one (with Nicole Duffy) looking at associations between individual patient characteristics and service use patters for Medicaid reimbursed behavioral health care, and the other (with David Chen) looking at impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on seeking medical care for injuries from interpersonal violence. These projects are sponsored through Delaware IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE). July saw the wrap up of two previous INBRE projects: Incidence of Sickle Cell Among Delaware Medicaid clients and Examining Functional Literacy, Health Literacy, and Medication Adherence among African Americans with Hypertension.

CCRS researchers Steve Metraux and Katie Gifford collaborated on and completed a project, funded by Arnold Ventures, with Brandon Saloner of Johns Hopkins University on "The Use of Buprenorphine During Incarceration and Post-Release Outcomes," that matched Delaware Medicaid and corrections data to assess the degree to which providing medications for opioid use disorder while incarcerated continued upon release to the community, and reduced levels of overdose and emergency department use.

HOUSING

​CCRS Director Steve Metreau with Biden School students Olivia Mwangi and James McGuire recently published an article Prior Evictions Among People Experiencing Homelessness in Delaware in the Delaware Journal of Public Health. The study was the focus of a story on Delaware Public Media.

Steve Metraux, Roger Hesketh, Mimi Rayl, and Alex Mondeas, along with Sean O'Neill from the Biden School's Institute for Public Administration, completed a report examining substandard housing and the need for repairs in low-income, owner-occupied housing in Delaware. The project is funded by the three Delaware Habitat for Humanity organizations. Look this fall for the report to be released and a webinar on the topic.

Steve Metraux is working with graduate students Lavay Glynn and Michael Donohue on a project that is working with the Springboard Collaborative ont heir work with ah omelss encampment in sourthern Delaware and efforts to move them to a pallet shelter community they are building.

Steve Metraux is working with graduate students Madeline Morris and Tiffany Gallup that will conduct interviews with heads of homeless families in which they recount their experiences with eviction and the role these experiences played in their becoming homeless.

PhD student Alexa Timmreck will successfully defend her dissertation proposal "The Asylum Lives On: Mapping the Complex System of Post-Institutional Life" in early October.

Masters student Alex Modeas will be working on an internship with the Delaware Public Housing Authority that is being launched this fall semester.
