My weight control research focuses on reducing disparities in obesity prevalence, and obesity prevention and treatment intervention outcomes in black women. As an InCHIP Affiliate, I will develop research using qualitative, quantitative and intervention methods to understand why black women experience subpar outcomes in weight control interventions. Prior to UConn, I conducted a comparative effectiveness study using a randomized control design to test how the standard behavioral weight loss treatment approach may be enhanced to produce better outcomes in black women.
