Oleg Zaslavsky PhD, MHA, RN

Assistant Professor

My program of research is consistent with biobehavioral adult health and health informatics mission of the department. My research is also well aligned with the School of Nursing ‘Lifespan Health’, ‘Innovative Methods’ and ‘Health Equity’ research pillars. Broadly speaking my program of scholarship is focused on understanding mechanisms and developing interventions for frailty and health improvement in older adults. Specifically, my research agenda has three interrelated foci: assessing and improving health outcomes in older persons at risk for and with frailty; understanding and promoting health equity and healthy aging; and examining the ways in which innovative technological solutions support quality of life and function in older and frail persons.
