Working to Eliminate Inequities in Childhood Physical Activity and Nutrition Outcomes

The Innovative Research for Equity in Activity and Community Health Lab's research seeks to eliminate inequities in childhood physical activity and nutrition outcomes among racial/ethnic minorities and socioeconomically disadvantaged populations through innovative behavioral interventions and policies in school and community settings.

More than one third of U.S. children and adolescents are obese or overweight, and many don't get the minimum of 60 minutes of daily moderate-to-vigorous physical activity that healthcare providers recommend. Mendoza and his colleagues work in schools and communities to study ways to promote physical activity and healthy eating, and to encourage alternatives to TV watching and other sedentary activities.
