In my research team we are examining the role of stress and emotions on the capacities of people to sustain wellbeing and recover from illness and other life challenges. Much of my work has focused on the health and wellbeing of chronically ill patients with musculoskeletal illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis and Fibromyalgia. In the Fall of 2005 I am returning to community research after a long absence to lead a 5 year study of risk and resilience among healthy and ill members of the Baby-Boomer generation.
