A little bit about Dr. Mangurian -

I am a community psychiatrist dedicated to improving the medical health of people with severe mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia, bipolar disorder). I have an NIMH Career Development Award (K23) to improve the metabolic screening of diverse populations with severe mental illness. I am also the Director and co-founder of the UCSF Public Psychiatry Fellowship at ZSFG. This is the only public psychiatry fellowship with a formal mental health services reseach component. Finally, I founded the Women's Advancement and Recognition in Medicine (WARM) Hearts group at ZSFG. I actively collaborate with faculty in the Departments of Medicine and Pediatrics. I also actively collaborate with the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

A little bit about Dr. Dilley -

For the past 20 years, I have had a professional interest in the mental health aspects of the HIV epidemic. I have been interested both in understanding the mental health consequences of HIV infection as well as in bringing a mental health perspective to the critical task of preventing the sexual transmission of HIV. In addition, as an administrator and the Director of the UCSF Alliance Health Project, the largest HIV and mental health services organization in San Francisco, I have an ongoing interest in service delivery and program evaluation.
