EMMC Behavioral Medicine

Behavioral Medicine is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the association between behavior and health.
  • Areas of research and clinical practice include chronic illness (cancer, multiple sclerosis, heart disease, etc.), pain, symptom management, disease prevention and wellness.
