Sarah Gordon is an assistant professor in the Department of Health Law, Policy, and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health. Her research is dedicated to studying coverage and access to care among low-income populations, with a particular emphasis on Medicaid policy. Her work seeks to understand how the fragmentation of the U.S. health insurance system impacts utilization, quality, and continuity of care. Her recent projects leverage state-level datasets, such as all payer claims databases, and quasi-experimental study designs to evaluate the effects of state-level policies. She received her doctorate in Health Services Research from the Brown University School of Public Health and a MS in Social and Behavioral Sciences from the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health.
