    Kelly C. Young-Wolff, PhD, MPH, is a licensed clinical psychologist and research scientist at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. She is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Young-Wolff received her BA in psychology and anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley, and her MPH and doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Southern California. She completed her NIDA-funded predoctoral fellowship at Yale University in the Department of Psychiatry and her NHLBI-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the Stanford Prevention Research Center in the Stanford School of Medicine. Dr. Young-Wolff’s research interests include investigating how stress and trauma, genetic factors, and health-related policies shape disparities in the onset and course of drug and alcohol abuse, tobacco use, and psychiatric disorders. She is also interested in conducting research to inform the development of effective behavioral interventions for complex patients with multiple, co-occurring psychiatric and addictive disorders.
