SHINE Research Program
Strengthening Health with INnovation and Engagement

The Strengthening Health with INnovation and Engagement (SHINE) research program, under the leadership of Dr. Sannisha Dale, engages in research that (a) enhances our understanding of the relationships between resilience, trauma, and health outcomes among individuals with HIV and those at risk for HIV, (b) investigates psychosocial (e.g., discrimination) and structural factors (e.g., poverty) that relate to health disparities, (c) develops effective prevention and intervention strategies to promote resilience and good health outcomes, and (d) engages community members and stakeholders in research.

....we seek to enhance health and well-being through innovative strategies that are informed by community engagement and infused with evidence-based psychological and behavioral tools.
