The family and community research area focuses on mental and physical health of individual family members and diverse family systems across various health care systems and communities.

Emphasis is on the investigation of family characteristics, dynamics, processes, experiences, functioning, health, and caregiving across the lifespan and transitions. Research ranges from exploration through testing of interventions to promote and sustain health in family members and family and community systems. With the changing landscape of health care and increasing demands on family systems, this research is critical for innovative, cost-effective care.
