Daniel Rosen, PhD, MSW, is a Professor of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh. He is the Director of the Integrated Healthcare Certificate, coordinates the joint MSW/MBA program, and is the chair of the Health Research Advisory Panel at the Center on Race and Social Problems. He completed a National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) Patient-Oriented Research Career Development (K-08) Award focused on addressing co-occurring late-life mood disorders in older adult substance abusing populations. In addition to the NIH, he has received funding for his work from the CDC, SAMHSA, HRSA, and national and local foundations. Dr. Rosen’s research focus is on identifying, defining, and elucidating the programmatic implications of structural and interpersonal barriers that impede individuals from obtaining needed mental and physical health related services. His research moves beyond “barrier identification” to collaborate with community-based providers in the design and implementation of innovative services for individuals with vulnerabilities.
