Nancy Sherwood, PhD
My research focuses on the development and evaluation of behavioral obesity prevention and treatment interventions across the lifespan with a focus on reaching engaging lower income, ethnically diverse children and their parents. A prominent theme of my work is integrating obesity treatment and prevention interventions into health care settings and creating connections between health system and community-based interventions to enhance efficacy and increase the potential for sustainability and dissemination. Additionally, I am interested in newer intervention science methodologies that improve our ability to tailor interventions in order to deliver “the right intervention to the right person at the right time."
