The Department is pleased to announce the appointment of Margaret A. Riley, M.D., assistant professor, to the position of Medical director at the Ypsilanti Health Center (YHC). Dr. Riley will take over for Caroline R. Richardson, M.D., associate professor, who served as medical director for two years, later this summer.

“I am thrilled to be joining Ypsilanti Health Center, and am particularly enthusiastic about working in an environment where both Family Medicine and Pediatrics are represented.”  

Dr. Riley will bring significant leadership experience to this role. She is currently medical director of the Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools and U-M’s Adolescent Health Initiative, roles she will continue to fulfill for the time being. Additionally, she is the family medicine physician lead at the Corner Health Center In Ypsilanti.  Health care disparities and adolescent health are her clinical passions. And, she is looking forward to implementing several innovative ideas to aid in the Department’s transition to population management.  

As medical director, Dr. Riley is looking forward to “exploring novel ways to bring in resources and engage with the community to broadly meet the needs of our patients.”

A graduate from the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, and an alumna of the Family Medicine Residency Program here at the University of Michigan, Dr. Riley has been a Department faculty member since 2009.

“We would like to thank Dr. Richardson for her commitment to the Ypsilanti Health Center over the last two years.  She has led the health center through significant clinical growth and quality improvement and will continue her practice at the site after the transition.  She will be focusing on her new role as the associate chair for research programs,” said David C. Serlin, M.D., assistant professor and associate chair for clinical programs.
