Peter Martin receives continued funding for research project on Health Personality Assessment

May 7, 2020

Peter Martin, human development and family studies university professor, received the next contract installation of $42,190, for a total of $354,841, from United Healthcare Service Inc. Martin developed the Health Personality Assessment (HPA) from 2016 to 2020. The goal for HPA is to “capture personality as it pertains to health and health behaviors” (Martin et al., 2020). Because of Martin’s research, both older adults and those involved in the healthcare field benefit with improved person-centered care. His project continues to explore the relationship between health personality and additional health behaviors, health variables, coping, and mortality.
