Adolescent Medicine

Research Activities

Our research program is designed to address key areas that affect the health of adolescents. We have expertise in STD research, behavioral change interventions to decrease sexual risk behaviors in adolescents, the impact of mental health disorders on physical health, somatic symptoms, and health services interventions to improve the treatment of adolescents with mental health disorders in the primary care setting. In our research, we benefit from close collaboration with the Department of Psychiatry, the Center for AIDS & STD Research, Public Health Seattle & King County, the Child Health Institute and Division of General Pediatrics, and the Group Health Cooperative Center for Health Studies.
