Elizabeth Ozer

Elizabeth Ozer

Elizabeth Ozer is Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF, Co-Director of Research Training in Adolescent & Young Adult Medicine, and Director of Research & Evaluation for the Office of Diversity and Outreach at UCSF. Dr. Ozer is a psychologist whose research has focused primarily on the health of adolescents, young adults, and women. She has served as either Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator of multiple U.S. federally funded grants focused on decreasing adolescent risky behavior through improving the care provided by the health care system and the primary care provider. This research has tested models for increasing the screening and counseling of adolescents in primary care as well as evaluated the effect of provider screening and counseling on adolescent behavior across multiple health risk areas. Recent Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and National Science Foundation funded research has explored ways that technology can be incorporated into successful models of prevention for teenagers, with a current transdisciplinary collaboration with computer scientists to design, implement, and investigate a self-adaptive personalized behavior change system for adolescent preventive health (with a focus on reducing adolescent alcohol use).
