Research of Eating and Activity for Child Health

The REACH Lab is focused primarily on pediatric health promotion research with the goal of improving the long-term health and wellness of children, adolescents, young adults, and families. Research areas include the development and testing of family-based healthy lifestyle interventions, understanding the biopsychosocial factors associated with pediatric health conditions such as obesity and functional abdominal pain, and the dissemination and implementation of scalable behavioral interventions.
