Elissa Weitzman

Dr. Elissa R. Weitzman is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, and of Adolescent/Young Adult Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital. Her research focuses on improving the health of youth, with an emphasis on addressing chronic illness and behavioral health problems. A mixed-methods scientist, Weitzman uses narrative, cohort, and “big data” passive or participatory surveillance methods to illuminate the epidemiology and experience of chronic illness. Recognizing population engagement with digital health tools and online disease communities, she has investigated willingness to share electronic data for research, quantified the quality and safety of online health communities, and tested informatics-enabled models for returning research data to cohorts to drive engagement. Weitzman has a Bachelor’s from Brandeis University, a Masters and Doctorate from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, and has completed post-doctoral training in Medical Ethics and Public Health in Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School.
