    Lyndsay Ammon Avalos, PhD, MPH, is a research scientist at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. She holds a bachelor’s degree in animal physiology and neuroscience from UC San Diego, an MPH from Boston University, and a PhD in Epidemiology from UC Berkeley. She was an NIAAA pre-doctoral fellow through the training program at the Alcohol Research Group in Emeryville, Calif., and UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health. Her doctoral studies concentrated on the modifying effect of multinutrient supplements on the relationship between alcohol consumption during pregnancy and reproductive and perinatal outcomes. As a Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) K12 scholar, Dr. Avalos’s research assessed the effectiveness of Kaiser Permanente’s Universal Perinatal Depression Screening program. Her current research broadly focuses on identifying genetic and environmental factors (e.g., alcohol use, medication exposure, ambient temperature, nutrition) during the perinatal period that influence maternal, fetal, and infant health.
