The Taveras lab focuses on understanding determinants of obesity in women and children and developing interventions across the life course to prevent obesity, especially in underserved populations. Opportunities for medical students include data analyses, and/or assisting with project operations of the following studies:

Connect for Health II: Implementation and Dissemination
Connect for Health is a clinical-community intervention to manage overweight and obesity among children ages 2-12 years. This program will disseminate the evidence‐based Connect for Health program, specifically targeting pediatric primary care practices that deliver care to low‐income children in the US who have a disproportionately high prevalence of childhood obesity and evaluate the effectiveness of the program implementation and dissemination.

Engaging Fathers in the First 1000 Days
A new randomized control trials is beginning in 2020 to strengthen fathers’ engagement in pregnancy and parenting as a potential strategy for reducing health disparities. The new randomized control trial will enroll new parents to an intervention which includes receiving educational resources, a text messaging campaign, and individualized health coaching for father-mother-infant triads beginning in the first trimester of pregnancy and follow participants through the first year of a child’s life.

Connect for Healthy Weight Pediatric Weight Management Program (PWMP): CORD 3.0
Connect for Healthy Weight PWMP is a CDC-funded study seeking to package, pilot, and disseminate evidence-based intervention components for low-resource settings. We have partnered with the American Academy of Pediatrics for packaging in preparation for large-scale dissemination. The focus for Year 1 of the study is to finalize packaging, engage with key stakeholders, and prepare pilot sites for implementation. In the following year, we will pilot the Connect for Healthy Weight PWMP in two federally qualified health centers in rural Mississippi to better inform our plan for dissemination, scalability, and sustainability of the program overall.

Infant Sleep Patterns and Accelerated Growth Trajectories from Birth to 24 Months: Rise & SHINE
Rise & SHINE is an NIH-funded study seeking to examine the multi-contextual origins of infants’ emerging sleep patterns and their effects on infants’ growth parameters from birth to 24 months of life. Data collected during study visits include: survey data (socioeconomic factors, nutrition, physical activity, maternal factors, feeding, and sleep); growth parameters (height/length and weight); and objective sleep measures using actigraphy. The study is currently in the last year of the grant, wrapping up data collection at the 24-month mark.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
