Susan Frayne is an associate professor of medicine at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, and a CHP/PCOR associate. A general internist, she previously founded and directed a comprehensive women's health center in Boston in which medical and mental health services were closely integrated. Drawing on this clinical background, she conducts health services research at the interface of medicine and mental health. She is examining both the mental health care that patients with mental illness receive in the primary care setting (identification and treatment of depression in primary care) and the medical care they receive (quality of diabetes care provided to patients with and without mental illness).
