    Kathleen Tebb, Ph.D., is a developmental and health research psychologist whose research focuses on developing, evaluating, implementing, and disseminating evidence-based interventions to promote health equity among diverse and underserved adolescents, young adults, and their families. Her specific areas of study involve understanding and promoting factors that contribute to positive youth development, health behaviors, and resilience among adolescents and young adults, with an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health. Dr. Tebb’s work has targeted multiple levels, including individuals, health care providers, parents, schools, communities, and public policy. She has also developed interactive, individually tailored mobile-health, computer-based interventions to promote adolescent and young adult health. She has a long-standing commitment to community-based participatory, patient-centered research. As principal and co-investigator, over the past two decades, she has conducted large, randomized control trials that have engaged stakeholders in the development and evaluation of health interventions.
