Health-Related Behavioral Sciences

Health-Related Behavioral Sciences, AD&T's newest research theme, is built on growing collaborations with psychologists, sociologists, and other social scientists. It strives to address problems related to the effective delivery of healthcare, such as patient adherence to prescribed medical regimens and human interaction with medical devices and technology.

The program recently announced it's first grant award to Guangjian Zhang (Lead PI, Notre Dame), Weilin Wang (Tianjin Metabolic Diseases Treatment and Prevention Center), and Shanhong Luo (University of North Carolina at Wilmington), for their project, "Dynamic Analysis of Self-Management of Patients with Type 2 Diabetes."
