Dr. Yelin is an emeritus professor in the school of medicine at UCSF. Dr. Yelin is perhaps best known for his work on employment among persons with arthritis and other chronic diseases. His research has shown that, on the micro level, the way work is structured is a much more important factor and that, on the macro level, the structure of the labor market has a profound impact on work disability rates. This work has resulted in over 50 publications on employment. Recently he has been appointed Vice Chair of CHBRP and directs the UCSF Center, housed in the Institute for Health Policy Studies, which does the analysis of the evidence of medical effectiveness for proposed health insurance mandates.
