Dr. Choi’s research focuses on inter-relationships among health, family resources, and local-area contextual factors. She recently examined life-course aspects of family spatial proximity and its implications for healthcare, following U.S. families over a 47-year span. Dr. Choi is a recipient of a K01 Career Development Award from the National Institute of Aging (2018-2023) to study the influence of potential family availability on informal/formal care utilization and related social, health, and financial costs among older adults with dementia and their caregivers. Dr. Choi also assesses health differences at older ages between the U.S. and England with particular reference to the role of contextual factors.
