About Us

Current trials Make Better Choices 2 and Opt-In are part of the lab's work in the intervention development to reduce unhealthy diet and activity behaviors related to obesity. Given expenses associated with traditional behavioral coaching, our work explores the efficacy of interventions on diet, exercise, and sedentary behaviors using feedback supplied via handheld technology. EBBP, along with its sister project, Team Science, aims to help bridge gaps among research, policy, and clinical practice, both in the US and internationally. Collaborative work with Erie Family Health Center in Chicago is securing physician input in order to improve provider tools for obesity intervention in electronic health records nation-wide.

Major funding comes via grants from the National Institutes of Health, particularly NIDDK, OBSSR, and NHLBI, as well as foundations, such as the American Heart Association and American Cancer Society.
