 Associate Professor - Psychiatry & Behavioral Neurosciences, Obstetrics and Gynecology (Secondary) and the Merrill-Palmer Skillman Institute

Research

Dr. Ondersma's primary interest focuses on developing ways to turn patient use of mHealth technology in the waiting room into a high-reach tool for integrating physical and behavioral health, increasing access to care, and establishing rigorous benchmarks for key health outcomes. He has been PI on multiple NIH and CDC funded grants and is currently PI on two NIDA research grants focusing on the development and validation of technology-based brief interventions for substance abuse and other risk factors among high-risk parents, especially pregnant and post-partum women.
