Stephanie Griggs is an Assistant Professor at Case Western Research University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. Dr. Griggs’ research addresses novel cognitive-behavioral and chronotherapeutic targets to improve glycemia in young adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D). Addressing sleep health and glycemic targets in young adults with T1D leads to meaningful decreases in healthcare expenditures and positively affects healthcare systems and society at large. Dr. Griggs is currently the Principal Investigator on an NINR K99/R00 Pathway to Independence and American Academy of Sleep Medicine Bridge to Success Awards. In addition, she is a co-investigator on a P50 Center Grant from NIMHD to delineate and target unaddressed social determinants of health to improve cardiovascular health for Black Americans in Cleveland, Ohio. Findings from her studies have confirmed associations among multiple dimensions of sleep health (timing, duration, efficiency) and glycemia in young adults with type 1 diabetes. The impact of her work is far-reaching, disseminated in national and international journals to nursing and interdisciplinary audiences. She is on the Editorial Review Board for Frontiers in Cardiovascular Epidemiology.
Dr. Griggs received her BS in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts, her MSN from American International College, PhD from the University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School, and Postdoctoral Fellowship from Yale University School of Nursing.
