SOCIAL INEQUITIES IN HEALTH LAB

THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK
 

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

LAB OBJECTIVES

Objective 1: Examine the relationship between socioeconomic status and health from a  biopsychosocial lens.

Objective 2: Identify and apply culturally attuned approaches to assessing health.

LONG-TERM GOAL

The long-term goal of this lab is to identify relevant pathways in the relationship between socioeconomic position and health. Alongside addressing systemic injustice, these data will be important in providing meaningful support to adults and children experiencing chronic stress due to social inequity.

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.
