Welcome to the Cardiac Psychology Lab!

Our Mission

We aim to improve the lives of those with cardiovascular diseases through research that examines lifestyle complications and psychological components contributing to cardiovascular illnesses and the development of novel interventions and treatment options. In this context we utilize multimodal methodology such as lifestyle and behavioral interventions, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac devices and wearables, and smartphone use. We are affiliated with East Carolina University’s Clinical Health Psychology doctoral program and East Carolina Heart Institute.
