For Patients:
My interests are focused on testing ways that primary care providers and community resources can effectively prevent and treat childhood obesity.
For Referring Providers:
My research interests are focused on evaluating tools and resources or childhood obesity prevention and cost-effective methods of treatment. This includes studying methods of training and support for primary care providers to carry out optimal growth monitoring, lifestyle screening and counseling. My interests include evaluating partnerships of medical providers with community resources for healthy lifestyles to provide obesity prevention and treatment services. I am also a member of the Colorado-based research staff of the National Children's Study, a long term observational study of environmental, dietary, and genetic exposures on child health.
