Pediatric preventative health screenings
This project is a research study that focuses on healthy weight messaging during children/adolescent’s annual checkup. Through patient-centered information gathered from focus groups made up of providers, teens, and parents, the study used surveys to collect experiences, expectations, and recommendations that will improve the pediatric checkup experience and increase positive health outcomes.
Recruitment for this study is now closed. We had 468 parents and 235 children complete our surveys. Thank you to all who participated! Data analyses and manuscript writing are ongoing.
This project is led by Epidemiologist and Assistant Scientist Andrea Cassidy-Bushrow, Ph.D. and the Department Chair of Pediatrics, Physician, Charles Barone, M.D.
The project is coordinated by Mr. Chad Coleman, MPH.
