Dr. Meyer is a faculty member in the Pediatric Psychology/Psychiatry Consultation & Liaison Program, with a joint appointment in Pediatrics. She works with children and adolescents hospitalized in the UNC Children’s Hospital who are dealing with issues of adaptation and coping with medical illness and injury. Dr. Meyer’s professional and research interests include understanding the ways in which a family’s conceptualization of illness and parent child communication impact quality of life and compliance in the juvenile diabetes population. Her background includes an emphasis on developmental disabilities, including autism and Asperger’s syndrome, and she continues to attend to the specialized needs of individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders who are further challenged by medical or psychiatric illness.
