Kate Gamwell, PhD, is a T32 postdoctoral research fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management under the primary mentorship of Kevin Hommel, PhD. Kate earned her doctorate from Oklahoma State University with a specialization in pediatric and clinical child psychology. Her dissertation was the first study to empirically investigate the relationship between illness stigma, thwarted social belongingness, and depressive symptoms in youth with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Kate’s research interests include cognitive and social appraisals that impact psychosocial adjustment and outcomes in youth with chronic health conditions as well as their parents, with an emphasis on pain and treatment adherence. She is particularly interested in the parent-child dyadic relationship and identifying risk and resilience factors in underserved pediatric populations.
Kate’s clinical endeavors mirror her research interests of promoting healthy adjustment in youth and their families with particular emphasis in idiopathic, autoimmune/inflammatory, and pain related conditions (e.g., JIA, FAP, IBS, IBD, asthma). After fellowship, she hopes to continue in this line of research implementing clinically meaningful protocols to promote healthy adjustment and illness management that lend themselves to enhanced quality of life for chronically ill pediatric populations and their families.
Kimberly Klages is a first-year NIH T32 postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management under the mentorship of Dr. Ahna Pai. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Memphis and completed her residency in behavioral medicine through the O’Grady Residency Program in Psychology in the Department of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology at Cincinnati Children’s. Kim’s research interests broadly include examining risk factors associated with poor quality of life and psychosocial adjustment difficulties among youth with cancer. She is particularly interested in the development and implementation of integrative and alternative therapies to reduce pain and fatigue in survivors of pediatric cancer. After completing fellowship, Kim plans on pursuing a faculty position in a pediatric academic medical center where she can continue her line of research and provide evidenced based clinical care to youth with chronic health conditions and their families.
Amy Noser is a first-year NIH T32 postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management under the primary mentorship of Dr. Hommel. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Kansas and completed her residency at Cincinnati Children's. Her primary research interests include the novel uses of technology to assess, facilitate, and promote self-management and adherence to medical regimens in pediatric chronic conditions. In particular, she is interested in use of technology to develop and deliver interventions that adapt over time to the patient’s changing status and circumstances with the goal to address their need for support with their medical regimen, whenever it may arise. After completing fellowship, Amy plans to pursue a faculty position in an academic medical center that will allow her to continue her research and clinical work with youth and families managing chronic illnesses.
