Research focuses on cardiovascular and metabolic disease risk
(insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and Type 2 diabetes) in
overweight and obese populations. A major emphasis of work examines
the associations between fitness and disease risk and the impact of
exercise and physical activity on the health status of high-risk youth.
