Collaborations and Consulting

Center for Healthful Behavior Change (CHBC) faculty are a multi-disciplinary team of investigators from diverse disciplines including physicians, behavioral scientists, psychologists, nurses, and health educators. CHBC faculty have deep expertise in strategies for the adoption and maintenance of healthful behavior change - a core component of chronic disease prevention and management.

The Center views itself as a resource to the wider NYULMC and NYU community and is committed to establishing meaningful, productive collaborations across the medical center and beyond. Center faculty currently collaborate with colleagues in the Departments of Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology, and Emergency Medicine as well as colleagues at New York University Steinhardt, Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, College of Nursing, and College of Dentistry.

Specific expertise include:

  • Development of specific aims for behavioral intervention proposals
  • Choice of theoretical models and targets for behavioral interventions
  • Development of protocols for treatment fidelity for behavioral interventions
  • Measurement and evaluation of adherence to prescribed treatment regimens
  • Development of cultural tailoring strategies in the design of behavioral interventions
  • Training of research teams on behavioral counseling techniques such as motivational interviewing
  • Methods to integrate technology into behavioral interventions
