Betsy Davis

Research Scientist

Betsy received her Ph.D. in Educational Psychology/Research Methodology and Statistics from the University of Oregon in 1992. Her primary research interest focuses on how to establish successful community-research relationships and build respectful cross-cultural bridges between non-majority cultures and mainstream evidence-based programs. This focus is predicated on understanding the societal factors that contribute to health disparities in non-majority cultures and how these factors affect our ability to truly address disparities through mainstream research. Thus far, this focus has centered on drug use and HIV prevention in Indigenous communities.
