Insurance

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.

Biography

Dr. Graham is a principal investigator in the Development Cognition and Neuroimaging Lab. She studies the developing brain beginning soon after birth. She’s interested in how the early environment, starting in the prenatal period, influences brain development and risk for mental health disorders. She uses structural and functional MRI to characterize developing brain systems. Due to the challenges of studying early brain development, this work involves optimizing tools for assessing the infant brain, how it differs between individuals, and relates to outcomes of interest. Dr. Graham also conducts intervention research with the aim of ameliorating effects of exposure to early life stress and supporting healthy brain development. The overarching goal of her work is to prevent psychiatric disorders and improve cognitive and emotional health across the lifespan.
