Behavioral Health Planning and Advisory Council (BHPAC)
The purpose of this research study is to understand the factors (e.g., feeling unhappy, lonely, frustrated) that influence caregiving a loved one with dementia. In addition, this study aims to understand how these negative emotions impact family caregivers’ confidence in their ability to provide high-quality care for their loved one. This is part of a larger study to best quantify the impact of caregiving stress on emotional and physical health with further research on how to minimize or overcome the negative effects.
Biobehavioral Mechanisms Explaining Disparities (BMED) lab integrates theories and methods from psychology, neuroimmunology, and autonomic psychophysiology to understand how the mind and body interact to affect those confronted with stressful life events. The mission of the BMED Lab is to inspire hope and to promote well-being by pursuing research, training, and education aimed at addressing disparities in health outcomes.
