Community & Structural-Level Interventions

The Department of Health, Behavior and Society is acutely interested in the social determinants (and longitudinal development) of health risk behaviors.

Further, we actively develop and test health behavior programs that intervene with entire communities and social structures—not only with one individual at a time. We recognize that to change individual health behaviors, we must consider the social context of those behaviors.
