Health Disparities Research Lab (HDRL)

The HDRL assesses the impact of behavioral communication skills training and decision-making interventions, with the primary goals of improving organ and tissue donation processes in the U.S. and alleviating disparities in access to transplantation for racial/ethnic minorities. More recently, the HDRL's focus has expanded to include evaluating measurements of nutrition/food literacy, investigating the medical nutritional management of chronic diseases and identifying health disparities related to food insecurity.
