Noy Phimphasone-Brady PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Division of Adult Psychiatry, University of Colorado School of Medicine


Phoutdavone “Noy” Phimphasone-Brady, PhD, received her PhD from the Clinical Health Psychology Program at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. Dr. Phimphasone-Brady is currently an integrated psychologist at the Women’s Integrative Services in Health (WISH) Clinic and the lead psychologist for the PCOS Multi-Disciplinary Program at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital. Her inspiration to work in healthcare began while studying a culturally adapted cognitive behavior therapy program for Mexican women with binge eating disorder. Regarding mental health care, specifically for women and women of color, she recognizes their many barriers to access personal or individual level barriers, or systemic and community level barriers. Her research was sparked with a dedication to solving these problems so they can receive the support they need. 


Research + Funding 

From 2020 to 2023, Dr. Phimphasone-Brady received funding from the Ludeman Center. As a Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) scholar, she received support for her research project titled, “Understanding and Targeting Disordered Eating in Adult Patients with Type 2 Diabetes.” Her goals for the project were to understand disordered eating behaviors in patients with type 2 diabetes as well as pilot test a CBT-based program to treat disordered eating behaviors in diabetes, and clinic level factors that could influence implementation of this program for use in real-world care settings. As a result of her training on the BIRCWH K12 program, Dr. Phimphasone-Brady recently received a K23 award (NIH/NIDDK) aimed at training integrated behavioral health providers to treat disordered eating behaviors in type 2 diabetes. This will help determine successful implementation strategies to improve the integration of behavioral health providers in comprehensive diabetes care.    

What she values most about the Ludeman Center is the mentorship, networking opportunities and their deep bench of unmatched researchers and collaborators.  


Transforming Women’s Health 

Dr. Phimphasone-Brady's current research priority is to understand and address sex, gender and racial/ethnic differences in the development of mental illness in chronic medical conditions as well as individual, systemic and cultural level determinants to the implementation, adaptation and sustainability of mental health interventions for chronic conditions, especially for women of color.
