Welcome to the Psychosocial Flourishing and Health Lab!
Our Lab’s Mission: Be part of a team that substantially improves the psychological and physical health of as many older adults as possible (across the racial/ethnic and socioeconomic spectrum), via rigorous research that informs the development of scalable individual-level interventions, and policies that drive systemic change in our society.
Our Lab’s Research: In pursuit of our overarching mission, our research aims to identify, understand, and intervene upon the dimensions of psychological well-being that reduce the risk of age-related conditions. We also aim to understand the influence that the social environment has on the connection between psychological well-being and physical health. In our work we integrate perspectives from health psychology, other areas of psychology (clinical, developmental, social, personality), gerontology, social epidemiology, biology, biostatistics, and translational science.
