Use our talents, expertise, and passion to serve others.
We accomplish this through evidence-based adaptations, training, and evaluation to ensure the best fit intervention is adopted and sustained within practice settings.
Respect and love for one another and all living beings, and using goodness to guide our scientific inquiry.
We demonstrate our commitment to these values through
Vulnerability and resiliency. Acknowledging and embracing when we don’t know the answer… . We ask questions, early and often.
Flexibility and humor. Remembering that nothing is perfect, but we commit ourselves to our efforts.
Appreciation of excellence in effort. Offer insight to each other to bring out quality in work (feedback on slides, elevator pitch, papers, etc.).
Stability. Mentor those less senior in the lab and seek mentorship from those more senior in the lab. Ensure adequate resource allocation (time, money, personnel).
Clear, honest communication, complete with active listening.
"In the PARCI lab, I have the privilege of training scientists and practitioners to impact the lives of others. As a registered yoga instructor and academic, I use science and the personal experience of clients, participants, and myself to promote that being active can change your life: You can avoid chronic disease, feel better in your body & mind, and maintain or find a better quality of life."
