PUBLICATIONS & RESEARCH
Early publications of SAHRC staff were focused on finding determinants of obesity. To design obesity prevention and treatment programs it is important to understand the underlying factors contributing to the rise of the disease. These SAHRC publications found that poverty, parenting, malnutrition, and inactivity were major factors associated with childhood obesity.
The recent focus of SAHRC staff, as shown in the publications below, is implementing lifestyle interventions to impact favorably health behaviors and physical measures such as blood glucose and adiposity.
