The dynamics of transgenerational obesity:
simulating systems solutions
K01-DK1022857 Boone-Heinonen (PI) 9/30/2015-9/29/2018
This study will develop a novel computational simulation model for studying the impacts of maternal obesity on subsequent generations, and to identify promising public health strategies that reduce obesity in the long-term. The simulation model includes the following phases: preconception and pregnancy, early life, childhood and adolescence, and adulthood.
Exploring social factors influencing pregnancy
R21 Messer (PI);Richardson (Co-PI) 4/1/2016-3/31/2018
This study aims to identify how nativity and documentation status shape adverse PO (inappropriate maternal weight gain, pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH)/eclampsia, PTB, term BW, small for gestational age (SGA) and how the residential food context exacerbates risk for adverse outcomes.
