Wendy Gray received a B.S. (double major in Psychology and Biological Anthropology & Anatomy) from Duke University in 2004. She received both her M.S. (2006) and Ph.D. (2010) in Clinical Psychology from the University of Florida, with a specialization in clinical child/pediatric psychology. Dr. Gray completed a pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). Her post-doctoral fellowship at the CCHMC Center for Adherence Promotion and Self-Management provided her with advanced training in adherence research across a number of chronic illness populations. Dr. Gray is currently an assistant professor in psychology. Her research is primarily focused on interventions to promote adherence to medical treatment among youth with chronic illness, particularly adolescents. She has a Career Development Award underway focused on improving self-management and the transition to adult care among adolescents and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Secondary research interests include family and peer influences on health management, illness stigmatization, and psychosocial functioning in chronic illness.
