Elizabeth Bates

Elizabeth Bates is a first year doctoral student in Prevention Science. She is honored to be a recipient of the Raymund Fellowship and is eager to dive into the research, academic, and professional development opportunities the fellowship affords her.

Elizabeth is coming to the Prevention Science program with a background as a pediatric nurse practitioner. She graduated with her BA from Harvard University and earned her BSN and MSN from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. She received additional training for pediatric acute care through Rush University College of Nursing. She aims to translate her research into effective population health solutions that will meet communities’ needs and bolster families’ strengths to ultimately prevent poor outcomes for at-risk children, alleviate effects of adversity, and promote healthy, positive development for all children.

She is thrilled to be at the University of Oregon and a Raymund fellow to further her scientific and methodological training in community-based participatory research, implementation science and translational research. She aims to lead research that will further develop a way of thinking about the relationship between structural and social inequalities and child development, and emphasize translating the evidence into effective community-based programs and practice.
