Greetings from the current RIG leaders:

Kyungeh is an associate professor in the Department of Adult Health and Nursing Systems and the Affiliated Faculty of the Center for Cultural Experiences in Prevention at the Virginia Commonwealth University at Richmond VA. Her program of research focuses on biobehavioral methods for assessing risks of cardio-metabolic disease and corresponding interventions to symptoms management and reducing mortality in diverse population.

We are looking forward to facilitating the growth of the Biobehavioral RIG.

* Due to changes in management companies, our listing of RIG chairs prior to 2006 is probably incomplete and would ask anyone who has served as RIG chair or know of someone who served as a RIG chair but is not listed to forward the name (along with their school affiliation and years of service) to Kyungeh An at kan@vcu.edu.  The Biobehavioral RIG is one of the oldest and largest RIGs in SNRS and we very much want to recognize the many stewarts that have made this RIG such a lasting success!
