Past Lab Projects:

  • Diabetes Experiences Study.  This research was supported by a Rutgers NSF RU FAIR grant awarded to Kristin August.
    • This study examined  social network involvement (family, friends, health care providers) in diabetes management and how this involvement differed by marital status, age, gender, and race/ethnicity.  This study further sought to understand how this involvement was related to health behaviors and emotional responses to such involvement.
  • Romantic Relationships and Health Study. This research was supported by the Rutgers Faculty Research Grant Program awarded to Kristin August, Charlotte Markey, & Christopher Nave.
    • This study examined how gay male couples support and regulate their partners’ eating behaviors, and how interactions about health-related issues may elicit cardiovascular reactivity.  The study also compared the pattern of relationships of gay male couples with heterosexual and lesbian women couples (data collected by Charlotte Markey).
