Principal Investigators

Dates: 11/1/11 – 10/31/13

Abstract: The focus of the investigator’s program of research is on the contribution of environmental factors on overweight and obesity. The purpose of this pilot study is to obtain preliminary feasibility data in support of a larger R01 grant application.  The specific aims are to:

  1. Construct one-year environment measures for us to a) four home sample sizes ranging from 1,000 to 100,000 and b) four different spatial scales around each home.
  2. Determine the feasible sample size for the R01.
