The Health Intervention and Treatment Research Lab conducts clinical research to enhance our understanding of how and why people change their health behaviors.Our goal is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of prevention and treatment among high-risk populations (e.g., young adults, Veterans).
We are particularly interested in electronic interventions that can be widely disseminated to increase the reach of public health promotion and prevention efforts. Ongoing projects target sleep and alcohol-induced blackout. Trainees in the lab learn the logistics of randomized controlled trials and gain experience with daily, self-report, cognitive, and physiological assessments.
