Parenting and Healthy Food Selection

In collaboration with Dr. Dan Graham in Psychology, and with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Healthy Research Foundation, we are exploring how parent-child interactions are related to the food selection during a naturalistic grocery shopping task.

We are currently recruiting parents and their 5-10 year old child to participate in this study. If you’re interested or want more information, see our Volunteer for a Study page.


Personal Characteristics, Family Relationships, and Multiple Dimensions of Health

In collaboration with Dr. Tori Crain in Psychology, Dr. Melissa George in HDFS, and Dr. Dan Graham in Psychology, we are exploring how personal characteristics and the quality of family relationships are related to physical (diet, exercise, sleep), emotional (attention to emotion), mental, and physiological health.

We are currently recruiting adolescents and emerging adults aged 15-21 to participate in this study. If you’re interested or want more information, see our Volunteer page.
