Find a Doctor Disclaimer
“Find a Doctor” is operated by Lifespan and includes all physicians who are on the medical staffs of Lifespan-affiliated hospitals, without any charge to them. Selection is based upon your needs and preferences. Search results will first present, in alphabetical order, physicians employed or contracted with Lifespan or its affiliates, followed by an alphabetical listing of physicians who are in Lifespan’s network of affiliated providers. At the end of that initial list, you can access an alphabetical listing of community physicians with privileges at Lifespan hospitals. All physicians in Find a Doctor have the opportunity to have a picture or video posted on the site. Neither the order of physicians, nor the presence or absence of a photo or video, in Find a Doctor is intended to reflect any preference, priority, or recommendation by Lifespan. Find a Doctor search results are also not based on the volume or value of referrals to Lifespan or its affiliates from any listed physician. Users are free to select their physician of choice from among all Lifespan-affiliated medical staff physicians.
Alyssa L. Norris, PhD
Research Scientist and Psychologist
Alyssa Norris, PhD, is a psychologist in the Integrated Behavioral Health program in women's primary care at the Women's Medicine Collaborative and a research scientist at the Center for Behavioral and Preventive Medicine at The Miriam Hospital. Dr. Norris earned her doctor of philosophy degree in clinical psychology from Washington State University. She completed her clinical psychology internship at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and post-doctoral fellowship in child/adolescent biobehavioral HIV research at The Alpert Medical School. She has multiple research interests related to violence and victimization, as well as alcohol and other substance use. Broadly, she is focused on the health of individuals who are more likely to be victimized and targeted with violence, specifically sexual and gender minorities (SGM) as well as young women during periods of transition like the first year of college. At this time, her research primarily focuses on building effective prevention and intervention programming to support SGM individuals to reduce health disparities rooted in the impact of the victimization they experience, such as heavy alcohol use.
