REACH (RESILIENCE, EPIDEMIOLOGY AND COMMUNITY HEALTH) LAB
Welcome to the REACH Lab!
Broadly, our team, led by Dr. Dana Rose Garfin, explores : 1) how negative life events and community disasters impact individuals and communities across the lifespan, and 2) how community-based interventions might alleviate the harmful effects of such exposure.
We use a multimethodological approach to examining these issues, which includes longitudinal, epidemiological surveys; qualitative focus groups; community-based clinical trials; and field experiments. We integrate biological, psychological, and cognitive metrics to understand how people respond and adapt to adversity.
