Overview: Research in the PHK lab focuses on the healthy development of at-risk, minority children and families. We are currently working on a federally funded (NIH/NIDDK), randomized clinical trial of an obesity intervention for Detroit, Head Start preschool children. Our emphasis is on engaging parents, motivating families, and improving physical and mental health outcomes for parents and children in need. The lab actively involves undergraduate and graduate students working collaboratively to advance science and improve children's lives.
