Population Health

We have a long history of studying disease prevention and health promotion initiatives. Our staff assesses programs to prevent childhood obesity and evaluates efforts that show promise in slowing the spread of the childhood obesity epidemic. We identify interventions that promote better nutrition and increased physical activity, and examine efforts to reduce risky behaviors as a means of promoting public health. Our work evaluating prevention models and interventions in the areas of smoking and substance abuse has produced valuable information to inform public health efforts. In addition, we assess pregnancy prevention models and evaluate programs promoting healthy pregnancies and maternal and child health.
