Comment about Social Program: “The social psychology program at UCONN was critical in fostering my development as an independent investigator in behavioral medicine research. The program gave me the opportunity to develop a strong theoretical foundation in social and health psychology and to apply this knowledge to promote public health. Furthermore, the advanced statistical knowledge and skills that I acquired as part of this program has enabled many opportunities for research collaborations.”
