Using health behavior theory and a community-based approach, our lab focuses on the following:

  • Targeted health behavior interventions

  • Developing community-driven strategies

  • Social psychological factors associated with health risk perceptions and behaviors

  • Underrepresented populations, with a focus on American Indians/Alaska Natives, Latinx, and those living in rural communities

  • Vaccine decision making

  • Substance use (cannabis use, commercial tobacco use)

  • The impact of marketing on health risk perceptions
