The Researchers of Biobehavioral Health in Urban Settings Today - RoBUST - is pleased to host Dr. David Almeida, professor of Human Development and Family Studies at the Pennsylvania State University on Wednesday, March 21st from 12 to 1 p.m. in 5057 Woodward Ave, room 7909. Light refreshments will be served before the talk.

Dr. Almeida will present, "Mapping Daily Stress to Health and Well-being: Adventures in the Web of the Unremarkable."


This talk will cover recent research on the effects of biological and self-reported indicators of daily stress on health. This research documents that minor yet frequent daily stressors are better predictors of important health outcomes than major life events, which have been the focus of research for decades. Findings are drawn from the National Study of Daily Experiences (NSDE), the largest longitudinal diary study of daily experiences and health in the U.S. Discussion will highlight the measurement of naturally occurring stressors and positive experiences to provide insights into how exposure and reactivity to these events in daily life can influence biomarkers, cognitive processing as well has global health and well-being.  

We hope you are able to attend this informative seminar!
