Personal bio
Lisa Goldman Rosas, Ph.D., M.P.H., is an Instructor of Medicine at the Stanford Prevention Research Center where she is also the Research Director for the Program on Prevention Outcomes and Practices. Prior to that Dr. Goldman Rosas was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Kellogg Health Scholars Program at the University of California San Francisco in the Center on Social Disparities in Health. She earned a Ph.D. in epidemiology (2008) and a M.PH. in maternal and child health (2002) from the University of California Berkeley School of Public Health. Dr. Goldman Rosas also completed a Latin American Research Fellowship with the Population Council Regional Office for Latin American and the Caribbean (2004). Dr. Goldman Rosas’ research seeks to promote healthy lifestyles among low-income and minority families using a community-based participatory approach combined with rigorous research methods. She pursues this goal using three main approaches: (1) Documentation of multi-level determinants of obesity and chronic disease with the purpose of informing policies that will address health equity; (2) Community-engaged and policy-relevant behavioral intervention research to identify strategies to promote healthy lifestyles and reduce disparities; and (3) Use of state-of-the art information technology to promote active living and healthful eating among marginalized groups in the US and abroad. Dr. Goldman Rosas holds a Scientist Development Award from the American Heart Association where she is pilot testing a family-based approach to promoting healthy lifestyles among Latino adolescents and their parents. Additionally, she is a Co-Investigator and Project Director for a comparative effectiveness trial examining two approaches for diabetes prevention among urban American Indian and Alaskan Native adults in collaboration with the Indian Health Center of Santa Clara Valley with funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
