Presenting Dr. Colin Zestcott 

Presentation: Sauna bathing is associated with a number of positive physiological outcomes. However, minimal research has examined the potential benefits of sauna bathing on psychological outcomes. This presentation discusses new avenues for research at the intersection of psychology and sauna. 

Dr. Colin Zestcott is an assistant professor of psychology and the principal investigator of the Social Cognition Lab at The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN. Dr. Zestcott’s research broadly examines how implicit prejudice and stereotyping contribute to health disparities and solutions for bias reduction in health care settings. In addition, he studies the manifestation of bias toward individuals with tattoos and the role of the physical body and metaphor in decision making. His work is published in a variety of psychology and medical journals such as Personality and Social Psychology BulletinStigma and HealthGroup Processes and Intergroup RelationsGynecologic Oncology, and the Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology
