Biography

Dr. Judy Tan is Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Prevention Science, Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS), at the University of California San Francisco. She is a behavioral and prevention scientist trained in social and health psychological theory, quantitative research methods, and intervention development. Her research combines theory-building and quantitative and qualitative methods to explain multilevel causal processes of health and to develop novel interventions to reduce health disparities, particularly those among sexual and gender minority people of color.

Dr. Tan is the PI of a NIMH R01 award to develop mHealth capabilities that target and leverage dyadic factors for enhancing HIV care engagement among Black gay and bisexual men. This project was awarded a Sage Bionetworks Digital Health Catalyst Award. She is also the PI of a NIA R21 to develop a choir intervention to promote psychosocial wellbeing among older people living with HIV. Dr. Tan’s research interests also include food insecurity, HIV and aging, smoking cessation, and dietary acculturation and cancer risks. She is a UCSF Deans’ Population Health and Health Equity (PHHE) Scholar.
