Karen Ingersoll, Ph.D. is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia’s School of Medicine with a B.A. in psychology from Louisiana State University, a Masters’ degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Southern Methodist University, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia.  She completed post-doctoral training in Clinical Health Psychology/Substance Abuse Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia. As a clinical researcher, she develops and tests interventions to reduce substance use and improve HIV care outcomes, two of which (CHOICES counseling intervention and PositiveLinks mHealth intervention) have resulted in national awards and international dissemination. She is the author of 100 peer-reviewed papers and co-author of 2 books, including Women and Drinking: Preventing Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancies (2015) and Motivational Interviewing in Groups (2013). As a clinical psychologist at UVA’s Ryan White Clinic, Dr. Ingersoll provides evidence-based treatment for people living with HIV who have behavioral, mental health, and addiction challenges. As a teacher, she trains medical residents, physicians, psychologists, social workers, community health workers, and peer supporters in evidence-based practices.

Matthew Burg, Ph.D. is a licensed Clinical Psychologist and a recognized expert in the study of behavioral and psychosocial factors that contribute to risk for incident cardiovascular disease and outcomes for patients with known disease, and in the testing of behavioral interventions to mitigate that risk. As a member of the faculty at Yale School of Medicine, he has led an over 30-year program of NIH and VA funded translational research focused on these pathophysiological processes, developing seminal research methods for examining these links, and conducting randomized clinical trials aimed at improving patient outcomes. His expertise extends to the design and testing of behavioral interventions to improve medical and psychosocial outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease and co-morbid depression and distress, and for increasing physical activity among sedentary patients. His work has contributed to a greater understanding of the biological, behavioral, and social-environmental factors and mechanisms that predict and explain self-management of heart disease, including adherence to recommended secondary prevention treatments.

In this webinar you will learn from psychologists who have successfully navigated a research career within an AHC conducting EHR and mHealth research respectively. In this interactive webinar you will have the opportunity to participate in each of two breakout- group discussions with these experts to inform the integration of research in your career as a psychologist in an AHC.
