Prevention Research and Health Equity Lab


Adolescence represents a developmental stage that is characterized by, among other things, an increased risk of engaging in problem behaviors. At the PRHE Lab, we are interested in preventing problem behaviors, eliminate health disparities, and work towards health equity. We are interested in conducting innovative research aimed at:

(1) Developing a fuller understanding of etiological factors associated with HIV, including substance use, sexual risk behaviors, and mental health challenges

(2) Applying this basic science to the development and testing of preventive interventions.
