Elizabeth Holliday Morgan, Ed.M., is a Ph.D. Candidate in Human Development at UC Davis. An educator by training, she holds a Master's in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and has supported Early Childhood practitioners in utilizing developmentally appropriate practice and inclusion strategies since 2004.

Her area of focus includes Early Childhood and Early Intervention Services with a specific interest in under-represented populations. She has co-authored a publication titled "Caregiver Voices: Cross-Cultural Input on Improving Access to Autism Services" published in the Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities and has several additional publications under review. In 2019 Elizabeth was the lead writer and project manager for a $92,000 grant awarded to the CEDD from the Department for Developmental Services Disparity Grant Funds to create video modules to address disparities in access to early intervention services for families in the Black and Latinx communities of Northern California. Elizabeth works as a graduate researcher at the MIND Institute and recently completed an NIH T36 Training grant with the Global Alliance for Training in Health Equity Research (GATHER) program where she spent a month interning for the African Population Health Research Center in Nairobi, Kenya. She's also an elected Board member for the Association for University Centers in Disabilities (AUCD) from her work as an ASD parent activist. When she isn't thinking about autism service equity, Elizabeth enjoys the theater and spending time with her family and their dog, Billie Jean.
