What we’re doing

In collaboration with Dr. Andrew Fuligni from The University of California, Los Angeles, we are expanding the research showing health-protective benefits from “acts of kindness” interventions. We are doing this by exploring the impacts of an “acts of kindness” intervention among adolescents on their biological and psychological well-being.

Why it matters

The insights gained from this project will help inform whether and how to integrate kindness and other prosocial strategies into technology products to improve youth health.
