The 2014-2015 Wisdom and Well-Being Speaker Series
Be Wise. Be Well.
with Margaret Kern, Ph.D
University of Pennsylvania
Some people thrive in life; others struggle. At a broad level, my research addresses the question of who flourishes and why. More specifically, my research focuses on two related areas: (a) understanding and measuring healthy functioning, and (b) evaluating sophisticated theories of psychosocial processes underlying health over time. I incorporate a lifespan perspective, innovative quantitative methods, and interdisciplinary collaboration throughout my research.
