Dr. Brianna Marzolf is passionate and committed to improving healthcare for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). By leading initiatives that prioritize accessibility and inclusivity, she is determined to bridge the gaps in healthcare services and empower individuals with IDD to lead fulfilling lives.
As the first disability health fellow at the University of Michigan, she feels honored and enthusiastic about her new role. She aims to tackle the challenges faced by this community through a multifaceted approach that involves improved education for healthcare providers, pioneering research, and advocacy for policy changes.
She is working with a team to create a novel “model” clinic named I-CARE for IDD (Improving Care, Access, Resources, and Experiences) dedicated to providing comprehensive care for individuals with IDD. The I-CARE for IDD model clinic is currently in development as Dr. Marzolf continues to collaborate with other healthcare providers to build the team (pharmacist, social worker, psychiatrist).
Dr. Marzolf recently graduated from the University of Michigan Family Medicine Residency. During her residency, she completed a two-year Healthcare Administrators Scholars Program, to further enhance her understanding of healthcare management and administration. She completed her medical education at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (2020).
