Meet Director, Bryan Sexton, PhD

Bryan is the Director of the Duke Center for Advancing Well-being Science.  He leads the efforts around research and training that guide our quality improvement and well-being activities.  A psychologist member of the Department of Psychiatry, Bryan is a psychometrician and spends time developing methods of assessing and improving safety culture, teamwork, leadership and especially work-force well-being.  Currently, he is disseminating the results from a successful NIH R01 grant, using RCTs to demonstrate that we can cause well-being to improve in healthcare workers. 

A ridiculously proud father of 4, he enjoys running, using hand tools on wood, listening to books on Audible, and over-reacting to a friendly game of Wahoo with his family.
