Travis Baggett, MD, MPH


Dr. Baggett, is a faculty clinician-investigator in the Massachusetts General Hospital Division of General Internal Medicine, and a staff physician at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program.

Dr. Baggett’s research focuses on the health of homeless people, with an emphasis on addictive behaviors and their medical consequences in this population. Dr. Baggett’s work in the neglected area of tobacco use among homeless persons has drawn attention to the scope and pervasiveness of this problem, challenged the tendency to view smoking as an immutable behavior in the setting of homelessness, and uncovered opportunities for improving the interdisciplinary and multilevel approach to addressing this issue. Among other projects, Dr. Baggett is currently conducting an NIH sponsored study aiming to understand and address tobacco use among homeless individuals.
