Topic 2: Health Behavior and Health Behavior Change in the Context of Digital Communication

Dolores Albarracin, Professor, University of Illinois, Psychology

October 4, 2018 (12-1 p.m.)
School of Social Work, Room 2015

Dr. Albarracin’s research investigates attitudes, behavior, and social cognition at both micro- and macro-levels of analysis (cognitive processes, culture, ethnicity). This research has important real-world implications that she has explored with the help of grants from the National Institutes of Health. Her hope is that exploring these processes will increase behaviors that are in the best interest of individuals and the society in which they live.
