Dr. Regan Marsh is the Senior Technical Lead for Partners In Health's US Public Health Accompaniment Unit, Director of Clinical Systems for PIH and Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School. She works as clinical faculty in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, where she co-leads the Health Equity Committee. Dr. Marsh has served as a leader throughout the COVID-19 response, building on her experiences with building health systems to improve health equity during and following the Haitian earthquake (2010) and the West African Ebola response.

Dr. Marsh has worked with PIH since 2008, in Malawi, Haiti, Sierra Leone, Rwanda and Liberia. In Haiti, she helped open the University Hospital at Mirebalais, and then served as Director of Emergency Medicine. There, her team started the first Emergency Medicine residency in the history of Haiti, now in its sixth year. In 2014, during the Ebola epidemic, she served as medical director for PIH, leading the transition from emergency response to health systems strengthening. Currently, she is the PI on a grant to strengthen human resources for health in Liberia, as well as focusing on the creation of hospital-based quality standards for clinical operations across PIH's sites.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, she served the Director of Medical Operations for Boston Hope, providing technical support for the opening and initial operations of the 1000-bed COVID field hospital. She is now the Senior Technical Lead for PIH's US Public Health Accompaniment Unit, focused on implementing community-based response solutions to stop transmission of disease and improve equity by supporting the most marginalized communities, working directly with over 15 cities, counties and states, as well as on policy, advocacy and knowledge dissemination.

Dr. Marsh received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Medicine. She competed emergency medicine training at the Harvard-Affiliated Emergency Medicine residency at the Brigham and Women's and Massachusetts General Hospitals, and received a Master of Public Health from Harvard School of Public Health.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
