What does our research show?

That keeping a food diary helps people lose weight and keep it off. That given the right tools, obese pregnant women can gain no weight and have healthy babies. It shows that if you send patients an at-home screening test for colon cancer, most of them will complete the test and mail it back. Our research shows that service dogs help veterans manage post-traumatic stress disorder, and it reveals that culturally tailored health interventions can improve outcomes for underserved populations.

Our research helps improve lives and transform health care. High-profile news outlets such as Reuters, the New York Times, and National Public Radio have covered our research, and we’d like you to take notice, too. Feel free to contact us to learn more.
