Lunch Talk: Social media delivered lifestyle interventions for pregnant and post-partum women

Monday, April 1, 2019

Hartford Campus
Hartford Times Building room 216

Excessive gestational weight gain and post-partum weight retention contributes to obesity for many women, increasing risk for chronic disease and complicating future pregnancies. Online interventions may overcome barriers to participating in in-person lifestyle interventions during this busy stage of life. This talk describes a line of research to develop and test social media delivered lifestyle interventions for pregnant and post-partum women.

Presenter: Molly Waring, PhD, Dept of Allied health Sciences
