Dr. Gooding is an adolescent medicine specialist in the Division of General Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Gooding received her BS from the University of Georgia, her MSc from the University of California Berkeley School of Public Health, and her MD from the University of California San Francisco. She completed her clinical fellowships in internal and adolescent medicine at Brigham and Woman’s and Boston Children’s Hospital and was on the faculty at Harvard Medical School for eight years, serving as faculty advisor to medical education student projects and co-chairing the HMS Wellness and Mental Health Task Force.

Dr. Gooding’s NIH funded research explores the preservation of cardiovascular health both during and following the transition from adolescence to adulthood. Her research uses longitudinal epidemiologic cohorts such as the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health), the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study, and the National Growth and Health Study (NGHS), as well as clinical populations such as young women with polycystic ovarian syndrome and healthy youth presenting for primary and reproductive health care.

In addition to her research and clinical work, Dr. Gooding teaches about adolescent and young adult care to medical students, pediatric and internal medicine residents, and health care professionals.
