Kari Leibowitz



Mindsets have the potential to influence not only our psychological well-being, but our physical health as well. My research seeks to understand and harness the power of mindset to improve health, particularly in healthcare settings. By understanding the power of mindset, we can improve our ability to help us do everything from manage our chronic illness better to learn to enjoy winter. 



Kari is dedicated to increasing trust in science and preventing the spread of scientific misinformation by writing about research transparently, honestly, and compellingly. Psychological research has the power to transform our lives - but only if we can access it.
