Jill Plevinsky is a first-year postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Adherence and Self-Management under the primary mentorship of Dr. Hommel. She earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and completed her residency in pediatric psychology through the Brown Clinical Psychology Training Consortium. Her primary research interests include self-management in adolescents and young adults with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), including medication adherence, transition readiness, patient-provider communication, and risk behaviors. Jill’s dissertation research examined self-management in college students with IBD from a socioecological framework, and she plans to continue her research in this population, using ecological momentary assessment to assess adherence and substance use.
Clinically, Jill enjoys working with adolescents and young adults with chronic medical conditions and their families to support disease management as well as overall adjustment and quality of life. She currently provides consultative psychosocial support and adherence promotion interventions for youth with IBD in the gastroenterology clinic. Jill is also an interventionist on a randomized clinical trial to improve medication adherence and symptom management in youth with asthma via telehealth.
After completing her fellowship, Jill will pursue a faculty position in a pediatric academic medical center that will allow her to continue her research and clinical work with youth and families managing chronic illnesses.
