Dr. Judith Chipperfield, Lab Director

Welcome to the Laboratory for Aging and Health Research! Here you will find information about lab members, and selected research findings and publications.

Research Focus

LAHR is directed by Dr. Judith Chipperfield at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. This laboratory is concerned with studying different psychological factors, such as personal control beliefs, that can enhance or maintain older people's health, physical activity, and well-being. We believe this research is particularly timely and important, considering that approximately 13% of the Canadian population is over the age of 65 and that this proportion is expected to double by the year 2036 (Statistics Canada, 2006).
