In addition to her varied teaching responsibilities, Becky is an active researcher in the area of health behaviors and behavior change including studies with a focus on motivating behavior change, the use of social support in facilitating behavior change, the use of community supports to assist individuals in changing high-risk behaviors, and the role of stress in health and disease.

Donatelle has received the Leadership Award, outstanding teacher award in her college, and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Presidential Award for Promising New Research in the Smoke-Free Families National Initiative. She has been an active member of several state and national committees and task forces and continues to work to reduce risk for high risk populations, particularly women and the elderly. Donatelle has written many books, including Access to Health (Benjamin Cummings), Wellness: Choices for Health and Fitness (Thomson Publishing), and AIDS and STDs: A Global Perspective (Pearson Custom Publishing), and she has written several chapters and manuscripts for various health-related books and journals.
