Dr. Richard Beaulaurier’s scholarship focuses on the social and health issues of older adults who are difficult to reach, marginalized and stigmatized. His recent scholarship focuses on their risk for HIV/AIDS, intimate partner abuse, and disability. All of his work focuses on maximizing consumer involvement in exploring and expanding the range of choices and options, preparing consumers to deal more effectively with professionals and agencies, and empowering people to seek policy and program alternatives to improve their situations in the way they understand to be most appropriate. Dr. Beaulaurier teaches in the areas of non-profit management, community organizing, research methods, and social policy.
