Research

Overview


The REACH Lab is a multi-disciplinary collaboration that uses quantitative, qualitative, and normative approaches to study the impact of social networks and social support on health and well-being, and access to services.

Our research has implications for understanding how social factors affect the development of illness and disability, as well as how they can promote and facilitate recovery and well-being. It also has implications for better understanding medical decision-making, informing ethical clinical and policy interventions to enhance the treatment and quality of life among vulnerable patients.

Our research focuses on the following areas:

Transplantation
Healthy Aging
Ethics
Shared Decision-Making
