Derek Griffith | Seeing men’s health through a new lens

Posted by on Friday, February 28, 2020 in Profiles.

     After years of seeing a decline in men’s health, Derek Griffith knew there was a better approach to improve health outcomes. As a clinical and community psychologist leading the first university-wide center in the U.S. focused on men’s health and health equity, he knew he had a chance to make a big difference. The Center for Research on Men’s Health studies health through the lens of those whose health outcomes are the poorest, and uses the insights to build a better future for all men.
