Prevention and Intervention

The College of Health Solutions is committed to disease prevention and treatment through innovative intervention strategies across the lifespan and to all segments of society. These strategies target some of the most critical health factors that we face locally and globally, including lifestyle behaviors (e.g., nutrition, physical activity), speech and language pathology, and behavioral health. We are developing new technologies and innovations in order to deliver the most comprehensive and effective prevention and intervention efforts.

 Some of these efforts include:

  • Leveraging smartphone and wearable technologies to support healthy lifestyles and reduce risk for chronic disease
  • Innovative technologies to treat speech and hearing disorders and how these treatments impact cognitive, neurological, and motor outcomes
  • "Big data" analytics to provide optimal prevention strategies and improve clinical care
  • Understanding how the integration of behavioral health care improves health and behavioral outcomes
  • Innovative interventions to reduce falls, improve motor function, and prevent cognitive decline in older adults
