The main focus of my research is to improve the management of overweight and obesity in primary care. My team has three lines of work to advance this aim: 1) Developing and testing web-based weight control programs that can be integrated into primary care, 2) Identifying the best practices of providers for motivating and assisting their patients to control their weight and 3) Creating weight control programs that can are free to end users and that be disseminated within primary care settings.
