    Robin Clark is a Professor in the Departments of Family Medicine and Community Health and Quantitative Health Sciences. He specializes in the economic evaluation of health care policies and interventions, with a special focus on substance abuse, mental health and primary care. His work has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts and by health and human services agencies in several states.
