A major focus of Professor Marsh’s work is the effectiveness of substance abuse treatment services for women and racial/ethnic subgroups. Recent analyses have focused on gender and racial/ethnic disparities in prevalence of opioid use and the impact of opioid use disorder treatment based on survey data from a nationally representative sample. Her work promotes health equity by identifying disparities in the prevalence, access and outcome of services and treatment in opioid addiction and has been supported by NIDA, NIMH and AHRQ.

Professor Marsh has published broadly on the integration of health and social care, gender and race/ethnic disparities, social work professionalization processes, social work practice and program decision-making. She is co-author of three books: Social Work Research, Volumes 1-4.  London, Sage (2015); Informing Practice Decisions (1993); and Rape and the Limits of Law Reform, (1982), along with numerous articles and chapters. Her awards and honors include the NASW Award for Excellence in Social Work Research, service as editor-in-chief of Social Work, the journal of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), service as Fellow and President of the Society for Social Work Research (SSWR), Fellow and Board member of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW) and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
