One focus is on behevioral interventions to promote a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating a health diet and adequate physical activity and sleep, in young adults who are at incresed risk for developing cardiovascular disease. My other research focus is on examining how an individual`s genetic makeup influences how he or she responses to specific treatments or interventions.
