The Active Project for Kids – TAP
In this project, we are examining the role of video games in physical activity in urban ethnic youth. Two secondary projects include a physical activity intervention and a focus group/cooking class intervention pilot. Data collection is currently ongoing.
Integration of Human & Animal Models of Stress
This project focuses on understanding the behavioral and physiological factors that place human and rodents at risk for negative physical and mental health outcomes. Lab-based stress tasks were developed to allow for comparison of stress responses across both types of adolescents. This project is in the data analysis and manuscript preparation phase.
