Peter Martin receives funding for health-personality assessment

April 26, 2019

Peter Martin, professor of human development and family studies, received an $84,385 award from the Unitedhealth Group. This award supports the development and application of an assessment to optimize healthcare communication between health care providers and older adults. The innovative health personality assessment captures health traits and behaviors, including health neuroticism, health extraversion, health openness, health agreeableness and health conscientiousness from an individual difference perspective. These health personality traits can be related to health indicators, behaviors, and needs of older adults in order to provide optimal healthcare.
