Research: My research interests include: prevention of obesity in children, promotion of physical activity in children, and promotion of physical activity in children with asthma. I was in a work group that contributed to the HEAT (Healthy Eating and Activity Together) Initiative for Clinical Practice Guideline for Identifying and Preventing Obesity in Children (NAPAP, 2006). I was a co-investigator on an NINR funded grant - Prevention of cardiovascular disease in children.
