Marian Jarlenski is an Assistant Professor in the Department
of Health Policy and Management in the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health. Her research seeks to advance knowledge about how health policies affect access to care, clinical practice, and health behaviors that ultimately affect maternal and child health outcomes. Current work, supported by the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Program, is investigating the effects of state policies pertaining to prenatal substance use on access to treatment and birth outcomes. Marian also conducts research into the implementation and effects of state Medicaid policies. She is a co-investigator on an inter-governmental agreement to provide research support for the Pennsylvania Medicaid program. Methodologically, she is interested in the application of quasi-experimental methods to estimate treatment effects when exposures cannot be randomized. Marian earned her Ph.D. from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and also holds an M.P.H. from the Yale School of Public Health and a B.A. from Otterbein College.
