Health Division

The Health Division at the University of Miami’s Department of Psychology serves as a hub for interdisciplinary research at the interface of psychology, behavior, health outcomes, and the sociocultural and/or biological processes that mediate the associations of these variables.

We actively conduct health psychology and behavioral medicine research. These research areas cut across multiple disease states and processes, with a particular focus on Cancer, Cardiovascular Health, Diabetes, and HIV/AIDS.

Much of our research focuses on some aspect of health disparities – be they related to racial/ethnic or sexual/gender minority populations.
