Clinical Health And Social Experiences (CHASE) Lab, Rowan University


CHASE Logo1The CHASE Lab is a research team in the Department of Psychology at Rowan University. We focus on understanding psychological and social influences on health and health behavior, particularly among women. We use scientific methods to understand how these influences work in the natural environment and how we can harness them to design, adapt, and improve behavior change interventions to promote physical activity, healthy eating, positive body image, and effective management of stress and chronic illness. We’re especially interested in digital health interventions that integrate tools such as social media, smartphone apps, and wearable physical activity monitors.Chase Lab 7.15.21

Our team is led by Dr. Dani Arigo, who previously worked at The University of Scranton (Department of Psychology, Scranton, PA) and Drexel University (WELL Center, Philadelphia, PA). See her CV here.
