    Collapse Overview
    Arturo Durazo's focus is on psychosocial factors that promote protective behaviors among those with disproportionate burdens of illness associated with membership in low socio-economic and ethnic minority groups. His research, guided by self-regulation theory, examines how illness and risk beliefs, particularly those relating to fatalistic control beliefs, influence emotional reactions such as illness worry and, in turn, either motivate or deter protective health behaviors (e.g., diet, physical activity, smoking cessation). These findings are used to guide the development of tailored health communication interventions to promote adaptive health decision making.

    As a postdoctoral fellow at the UCSF CTCRE, Arturo Durazo plans to involve cancer patients and survivors to examine the relationship between their views on cancer, affect in response to cancer, and tobacco use. These findings are to inform health communication interventions promoting smoking cessation in cancer patients and survivors.
