Health Behaviour Change

Improve people’s lives through research that applies the science of behaviour change

Researchers work with communities to design and implement innovative programs to achieve important changes in health. By applying evidence-based principles, faculty collaborate with communities to develop, implement, and evaluate interventions to promote and maintain health behaviours.

Mission: The Health Behaviour Change group plans to undertake research to: improve people’s lives through research that applies the science of behaviour change. The group has a specific focus on working with people at risk for, or living with diabetes, and people with physical disabilities, particularly people with a spinal cord injury (SCI).
