SOCIAL INEQUITIES IN HEALTH

SOCIAL INEQUITIES IN HEALTH LAB DETAILS

THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK

Research projects conducted in the lab are influenced by interprofessional theoretical models, including those in counseling psychology, health psychology, and public health. These disciplines guide the lab’s conceptualization of socioeconomic health inequities and focus on specific study constructs.

PRIMARY LAB OBJECTIVES

Objective 1: Understand the relationship between socioeconomic status and health from a  biopsychosocial lens.
Objective 2: Identify and apply culturally attuned approaches to assessing health.

RESEARCH MENTORSHIP

My goal is to co-create a mentoring space with you. Some key aspects include:
1: Collaborative – We will work together to identify and cultivate opportunities for you to meet your goals.
2: Developmental – We will create spaces where you can share the knowledge, skills, and resources that you bring to the team. We will also identify areas of growth and paths to explore, learn, and build awareness.
3: Experiential – We will identify opportunities to participate in the research process, including presenting and publishing data.

RESEARCH MENTORSHIP: MY COMMITMENT 

My hope is to co-create a lab with everyone that cultivates courageous, engaging, and meaningful dialogue where we can learn with and from one another. I welcome the knowledge and experience that everyone brings into this community. My social positionality, particularly but not limited to, my interlocking identities as a white cisgender heterosexual woman, has shaped my access to resources and perspective of the world including health and well-being. I am committed to engaging in ongoing self-reflection to unlearn the ways in which I unconsciously perpetuate harm.
