Hi! My name is Brianna Marzolf and I was born and raised in Auburn Hills, Michigan. During my senior year of high school, I was accepted to Michigan State University’s Osteopathic Medical Scholars Program. I spent the next eight years gaining a B.S and then a D.O degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
I am passionate about Disability Health. This is the reason why I decided on the field of Family Medicine, and the reason why I am so excited to be a part of the University of Michigan team. Approximately 1 in 5 people in the United States identify themselves as a person with a disability and experience significant health inequities. I believe lack of physician education plays a role in the health inequities faced by persons with disabilities. My goal is to create residency/fellowship curriculum which would allow physicians to gain more knowledge and experience caring for these patients. Disability Health is a priority for the Michigan Family Medicine Department as well. There are numerous ongoing research projects, and enormous support from faculty. One example is the MDisability program, which is a collaborative effort focused on addressing healthcare disparities, advancing disability research, providing Adaptive Sports and transforming medical education.
During my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, watching stand-up comedy, cooking beginner level meals, and pretty much anything that involves being around my wonderful husband and family.
