    Collapse overview
    Susan D. (Moore) Brown, PhD, is a Research Scientist I and licensed clinical psychologist at the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Division of Research. Her research focuses on health behavior change for chronic disease prevention, particularly among racial and ethnic minority groups. She has directed weight management lifestyle interventions for several federally funded trials and examines patient engagement, program effectiveness, and implementation-related issues. Her interests in minority health extend to ethnic identity and minority recruitment to clinical trials. Dr. Brown has received a Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to examine patient engagement in diabetes prevention programs, as well as support from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities Loan Repayment Program. Dr. Brown completed her undergraduate degree at Duke University and doctorate in clinical psychology at Boston University. Prior to joining the Division of Research in 2010, she completed predoctoral clinical training at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a postdoctoral research fellowship in cardiovascular disease prevention at the Stanford Prevention Research Center in the Stanford University School of Medicine.
