My research program examines biobehavioral predictors of obesity risk in young, low-income children. We also examine parenting around eating. We are testing an intervention addressing emotional and behavioral self-regulation as an obesity prevention strategy among low-income children in a community-based randomized controlled trial across 5 counties in Michigan.
