Dr. T is on a roll with the press!
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) website features our very own DiSH Lab Director, Dr. T, and acknowledged her recent Society of Behavioral Medicine’s 2013 Early Career Investigator Award (Congratulations too, Dr. T!). The award recognizes Dr. T’s paper on racial disparities in chronic psychological stress and body mass index (BMI) among girls between the ages of 10 and 19. The study looked into the disparities of 2,400 Black and White girls, and found that stress correlates with higher BMI levels. Furthermore, this correlation is more prevalent in Black girls than it is in White girls.
