Welcome to the Hunleth Lab

The major objectives of the Hunleth Lab are to:

  1. Identify the social, political, and economic contexts that shape how people seek and respond to healthcare and medicine, across a range of diseases such as cancer, HIV, tuberculosis, and asthma. 
  2. Examine the social and political implications of family caregiving, including caregiving by children, in order to better assist caregivers and reduce caregiver strain. 
  3. Develop methodologies to honor children’s experiences of and responses to illness, and use their research contributions to inform more appropriate health programming.
  4. Create innovative, multi-modal approaches to disseminating research on health to the public.
