Welcome to The REACH Lab


The REACH Lab (Research on Ethics, Aging, and Community Health) is dedicated to understanding how inequalities in social networks and social support affect health disparities and health care decision-making. Our lab incorporates multidisciplinary approaches to better understand the social mechanisms underlying health disparities, with the goals of improving patient-centered decision-making at the individual level, and informing health policies at the population level.

Our research partners include patients, families, clinicians, community-members, patient advocates, community organizations, health care centers, academics, and policy makers. Learn more >
