Welcome to Dr. Everhart’s Research Lab at VCU!

In our lab, we focus on understanding child health and behavior within the context of pediatric illnesses, especially pediatric asthma and cystic fibrosis. We are particularly interested in studying family functioning and how families manage child chronic illnesses in the presence of urban and cultural stress. Our research is community-based and we enroll families and children from the Richmond area in our research studies. Our lab is currently enrolling families in the RVA Breathes program.
