Lindsay’s research draws from both social- and health-psychological perspectives and is focused on developing and testing interventions designed to increase the initiation and maintenance of health behaviors in the general population as well as among medically underserved individuals and cancer survivors. At the Center, among other projects, Lindsay contributed to the evaluation of the Healthy Eating for Life Curriculum for adults who were medically underserved and were students in an English as a Second or Other Language course. She also conducted studies examining the application of socioemotional selectivity theory to health messaging efforts for cancer survivors. Lindsay has a keen interest in health promotion research as it applies to a wide variety of health behaviors including physical activity, healthy eating, HIV prevention, and smoking cessation.
