Marthe R. Gold MD, MPH, formerly of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), has been appointed as a Visiting Scholar at NYAM. Dr. Gold will focus her efforts to advance the New York State Health Improvement Plan/Prevention Agenda in concert with NYAM’s Division of Health Policy. Specifically, Dr. Gold will work to develop strategies that promote a broader role for the public in influencing social and environmental factors that contribute to (or detract from) the health and well-being of communities.
Dr. Gold currently serves as the Logan Professor of Community Health and Social Medicine at the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education at City College, New York, an institution whose mission is to increase the pipeline of individuals underrepresented in careers in medicine and to cultivate primary care clinicians who are committed to practice in underserved New York communities.
During her tenure at HHS, Dr. Gold worked primarily on health care reform and on the economics of medical care and health. Dr. Gold directed the work of the Panel on Cost-Effectiveness in Health and Medicine, an expert panel whose report remains an influential guide to cost-effectiveness methodology in academic and policy uses. She is currently completing an AHRQ-sponsored project that is studying different methods for gaining the public’s views on critical health policy issues. A member of the Institute of Medicine, Dr. Gold served as Chair for the Committee on Public Health Strategies to Improve Health, whose three reports (2010-2012) issued recommendations directed at strengthening the public health infrastructure, improving population health, and limiting cost growth.
A graduate of the Tufts University School of Medicine and the Columbia School of Public Health, Dr. Gold is a family practice physician who has worked in rural and urban underserved communities.
