    Research Description
    My team and I study the impact of social cognition on health. In particular, I'm interested in how casual attributions shape physical and psychological health following a cardiovascular event. We are currently doing a pilot intervention study that uses motivational interviewing to increase medication adherence and participation in cardiac rehabilitation among patients with cardiovascular disease. We are also validating a measure of cardiac self-blame attributions among patients in cardiac rehabilitation.

Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty member whose interests align with your interests, be sure to review the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor.

The Director of Undergraduate Research, Dr. Jane Greer., can provide you with further guidance about finding and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.

Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting with a potential faculty mentor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty member and to begin a conversation about how you might work with that him or her.
