Jerusha Detweiler-Bedell

Biology-Psychology Hall

My program of research brings together investigations of human decision-making, health psychology, and clinical psychology. In particular, I am interested in promoting physical and mental health behaviors using message framing. Although the average person has many opportunities to adopt behaviors that increase physical health and mental well-being, it can be challenging to carry out these behaviors regularly. My research objective is to tackle the problem of failing to do “what’s best” for one’s physical and mental health.
