The Health Experiences and Longevity (HEAL) Lab is directed by Dr. Kendall Soucie in the Department of Psychology at the University of Windsor.  

About Dr. Kendall Soucie

Dr. Soucie earned her B.A. at the University of Windsor, her M.A. at Wilfrid Laurier University, and her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Wayne State University. She recently joined the University of Windsor as a tenure-track faculty member in the Child Clinical area in 2019. Her most recent research interests are in understanding the social, cultural, and institutional determinants of women’s health and chronic illness diagnosis and management (e.g., diagnosis experiences, misdiagnoses/errors, illness disclosure, patient-practitioner communications, and obesity stigma). Her second area of interest lies in understanding youth generativity and its concurrent and longitudinal correlates (e.g., environmentalism, community engagement, and well-being during the transition to adulthood). Dr. Soucie is also a strong proponent of mixed-method research designs and  integrates qualitative and quantitative methodologies to better understand these domains of study. 

Dr. Soucie teaches the following courses: 

Advanced Statistics (Psyc3010)

Social Science Research Methods (Psyc2300)

Child and Adolescent Development (Psyc2230 & 2240)
