SOCIAL INEQUITIES IN HEALTH

SOCIAL INEQUITIES IN HEALTH LAB

THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK
 

Research projects conducted in the Social Inequities in Health lab are influenced by theoretical models in counseling psychology and psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) - a field that bridges multiple disciplines, including psychology, immunology, and endocrinology. These theories guide the conceptualization of socioeconomic health inequities and the inclusion of biological variables in studies.

LAB OBJECTIVES

Objective 1: Examine pathways that link socioeconomic position with adverse health outcomes.

Objective 2: Identify intrapersonal and interpersonal strategies that modify the relationship between socioeconomic position and health.

Objective 3: Identify and apply culturally attuned approaches to assessing health.

LONG-TERM GOAL

The long-term goal of this lab is to identify and hone psychosocial interventions that enhance biological functioning and in turn, reduce the incidence of health conditions in adults and children experiencing chronic stress related to social inequities. Alongside addressing systemic barriers, these interventions will be important in providing meaningful support to adults and children experiencing social inequities.

RESEARCH MENTORSHIP

My goal is to co-create a mentoring space that is:

1: Collaborative – we will work together to identify and establish your goals.

2: Developmental – we will identify prior knowledge you are bringing into the research process and which skills you would like to develop during graduate school.

3: Experiential – you will be introduced to multiple stages of the research process with opportunities to participate in presenting and publishing data.
