Sheria G. Robinson-Lane, PhD, MSN, MHA, RN, is an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan School of Nursing in the Department of Systems, Populations, and Leadership. Dr. Robinson-Lane’s work aims to reduce health disparities and improve health equity for diverse older adults and family caregivers managing pain and chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Robinson-Lane’s research addresses the ways in which older adults adapt to changes in health, and particularly how various coping strategies affect health outcomes. Her current work is focused on improving the ability of Black, Latinx, and other diverse older adults to successfully age in place through culturally responsive and community-engaged care practices along with effective caregiver support. To this end, she has developed and presented numerous presentations and publications on effective clinical practice and the care and symptom management of older adults with chronic disease. Dr. Robinson-Lane completed her PhD in Nursing at Wayne State University in Detroit and a postdoctoral fellowship in Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training at the University of Michigan Medical School.
