Rebecca Raciborski, Ph.D., is a health economist interested in the application of economic analysis to mental health services and implementation research. Dr. Raciborski specializes in applying econometric methods for causal inference to observational data and is passionate about teaching best practices for study design and data analysis and about developing effective methods for communicating statistical results with policymakers. Currently, she is Site PI for a project comparing the cost and efficacy of suicide safety plans developed in a group setting (VA CSR&D Merit, I01 CX001705-01A1) and site lead for a project examining outcomes for patients assigned different medications for opioid use disorder (NIDA, CTN-0142).
