Carolyn’s research focuses on overweight and obesity among underserved children and youth. Specifically, through observational and intervention research, her team is investigating the behavioral and environmental factors, both protective and detrimental, that influence a child’s risk for obesity. The specific foci are: 1) family meals in low-income populations; and 2) unhealthy summer weight gain in low-income elementary-age children.
