    Elizabeth Ozer is Professor of Pediatrics at the University of California, SF (UCSF), Director of Fellows 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).

    In addition to intervention research, Dr. Ozer and colleagues have examined ethnic/racial disparities in the delivery of preventive services, rates of screening for depression in primary care, and trends in depression, nutrition, and physical activity screening. Extending beyond the adolescent age-group, recent work has emphasized young adult preventive health care. Dr. Ozer is currently PI of a Maternal & Child Health (MCHB) funded Adolescent/Young Adult Health Network with a focus on developing a national transdisciplinary research agenda for adolescent and young adult health and to translate research into practice.

    Dr. Ozer is Chair of the University of California System-Wide Committee on the Status of Women; and a member of the UCSF Advisory Committee on the Status of Women and the Campus Council on Faculty Life. In 2007, she served as a visiting professor at the University of Melbourne.
