The Fisher Institute of Health and Well-Being (FIHW) is the key research hub of the College of Health. The FIHW is led by the Director, Dr. Lenny Kaminsky and the Associate Director, Dr. Youfa Wang. Both are successful researchers with a wealth of experience in leading interdisciplinary research projects.

Faculty within the College of Health and across Ball State University have joined the Fisher Institute as Research Affiliates. The group uses the unique expertise of key affiliates to build research collaborations to answer important research questions. We encourage you to review our range of expertise.

The FIHW also seeks to share our research expertise with the community, working together to seek evidence-based solutions to existing challenges. Our work with the community is guided by the expertise of our FIHW External Advisory Board.
