Margaret Handley, PhD, MPH

Professor in Residence

Dr. Margaret Handley is a public heath-trained epidemiologist in the Departments of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Center for Vulnerable Populations, at the University of California San Francisco, Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. She co-Directs the UCSF PRISE Center, Partnerships in Research in Implementation Science for Equity.

Dr. Handley’s research focuses on health communication for improving health outcomes and equity. She co-developed and co-directed the UCSF Training Program in Implementation Science for over 10 years, which focuses on translating evidence into practice, policy and public health and teaches courses in intervention development and implementation designs in real-world settings. She is one of the Principal Investigators for the NIH-funded R25 training program in implementation since (RISE, focusing on implementation science and health equity).

In 2022 she was awarded a Fulbright to develop training in implementation science applied to climate change interventions, in partnership with colleagues at the School of Public Health, Zagreb, Croatia.

She currently teaches “Study Designs for Interventions in Real World Settings” Her areas of interest are: intervention design, implementation science for health equity, public health literacy, migration and health/trans-national health, and environmental pollution. Dr. Handley has methodological expertise in community-engaged research, quasi-experimental designs, implementation science, practice-based research, and mixed methods. She is committed to implementation science skill-building across a wide range of settings, including under-resourced settings, UCSF-based degree programs, and nationally focused immersion and distance training for junior faculty under-represented in NIH funding. Dr. Handley also works in English as a Second Language (ESL) classrooms in the Bay Area with students and teachers to create effective risk communication materials for community and clinical settings.
