Seattle Quality of Life Group (SeaQoL)

Dr. Edwards is a founding member of the SeaQoL Group. The mission of the SeaQoL Group is to improve the health and quality of life of children, youth, and adults by: 1) Advancing the development, acceptance, and use of self-reported measures of health and quality of life; 2) Collaborating with groups who endure health and quality of life disparities because of persisting health conditions, stigma, or unequal opportunity; 3) Conducting literature syntheses, research, demonstration, and evaluation projects with state of the art scientific methods to assess health and quality of life of these populations; and 4) Promoting the use of results by decision-makers and the public. For a list of past and present SeaQoL projects, see:
