Dr. Young’s research and clinical interest is the promotion of healthy aging with a particular focus on the interface between family and formal health-care systems. She conducted several longitudinal studies of family caregiving in the context of cognitive decline. Her previous research focused on medication management and safety in rural, assisted-living settings, technological approaches to promoting medication safety in rural hospitals. Her current research includes the use of telehealth and community-based strategies to promote health for rural older adults. Dr. Young also collaborates on a number of interdisciplinary projects, including the Initiative for Wireless Health and Wellness at UC Davis, a project involving faculty from nursing, medicine, engineering and the Center for Information Technology Research for the Interest of Society (CITRIS). She is co-director of the Latino Aging Research Resource Center.

She serves at both the national and state levels in supporting the implementation of the recommendations of the landmark Institute of Medicine report, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.” She serves on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Strategic Advisory Committee that guides the national campaign as well as the California Action Coalition executive committee, which leads the statewide activities.

Dr. Young is a UC Davis alumna, graduating in 1981 with a bachelor’s degree in dietetics. She later earned an associate degree in nursing from Sacramento City College and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Southern Oregon State College. She then went on to the University of Washington, where she earned a Master of Science in Nursing degree with a specialty in gerontology and a doctorate in nursing science.
