The overall goal of the Duke Roybal Center is to catalyze the development of cross-disciplinary research to develop and test innovative behavioral and social interventions for older adults. These interventions work to improve mobility to enhance functional independence and increase engagement with meaningful activities and participation.

 

This Center houses an enriched environment which includes experiential learning informed by Social Cognitive Theory to foster the development of skills needed to design, refine, test, and implement novel behavioral interventions for enhancing mobility. Our approach may serve as a national model for skills-based research training for researchers to develop effective, cross-disciplinary, and translatable behavioral interventions to enhance mobility in older adults.
