Mary Jane England, MD

Clinical Professor, Health Law, Policy & Management - Boston University School of Public Health


Dr. England, who served as president of Regis College for 10 years and previously headed the Massachusetts Department of Social Services, said she was grateful for the chance to re-enter the health policy field at BUSPH, at the invitation of Dean Bob Meenan. Among her projects will be a review of mental health services for students on the medical campus, which is scheduled for completion by December. England said recent advances in understanding “the science of the brain” in treating depression, addiction and other behavioral health disorders were exciting. Now, she said, the challenge is to make the same kind of gains in healthcare delivery systems. In addition to her new role at BUSPH, England is chairing a steering committee of a Colorado project called Advancing Care Together [ACT], a four-year effort that is bringing together experts in primary care, substance abuse and mental health to pilot and evaluate integrated-care approaches. She said she is proud of that effort, which followed from her IOM committee work.
