Dr. Ersig focuses on stress and anxiety associated with chronic health conditions. She is particularly interested in examining the association of genomic and biological variants with chronic stress and anxiety in the context of psychological, behavioral, and social factors. Her primary line of research explores how adolescents and emerging adults with childhood chronic health conditions and their family members respond to acute and chronic everyday and illness-related stressors, including living with and managing a childhood chronic health condition. Dr. Ersig seeks to help identify new avenues to improve the stress experiences of individuals living with significant chronic medical conditions.
