My research involves the treatment and prevention childhood obesity and diabetes. As rates of childhood obesity increase, type 2 diabetes in children, a disease that was previously seen only in the adults, will continue to increase. Obesity is the single most important risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes and therefore, I am interested in developing and evaluating community-based programs designed to prevent childhood obesity. Also, I am interested in developing and evaluating innovative ways to provide the health services necessary for children with diabetes in order to optimize their care and prevent long term complications of this disease.
