Article
Unhealthy lifestyle behaviors are major public health problems. Promoting positive behavior change is an ongoing challenge that warrants innovative solutions. Mobile phone use is becoming widespread across populations and merits further exploration as a strategy to promote wellness and reduce health disparities. The purpose of this paper is to revi...
Article
Background: Children are 5 times more likely to be overweight at the age of 12 years if they are overweight during the preschool period. Objective: The purpose of this study was to establish the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary effects of a cognitive behavioral intervention (TEXT2COPE) synergized with tailored mobile technology (mHeal...
Article
Introduction: Significant gaps exist in the published literature regarding the treatment of overweight/obesity in preschool-aged children, especially in primary care settings. Parental influence plays an important factor in the development of healthy behaviors in children, yet there is no consensus about why some behavior change intervention strat...

Poster
Both maternal and infant mortality rates serve as indicators of population health and are unacceptably high worldwide. Voice assistant (VA) technologies (e.g. Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa) present a potential new modality to support health. We developed SMILE, a theory-guided, interactive, VA intervention to deliver brief, evidence-supported mat...

Article
A novel class of antenna-impregnated fabrics is proposed for wireless and unobtrusive height measurement on the go. Contrary to conventional infantometer and stadiometer technologies that restrict height monitoring to sporadic intervals, this technology brings forward regular height monitoring with minimum impact to the individual's activity. The p...

Widely researched as separate entities, our understanding of the comorbid effects of childhood obesity and asthma on quality of life is limited. This article discusses the effects of childhood obesity and asthma on self-reported quality of life in low-income African American teens with asthma. When controlling for the influence of symptom frequency...
Article
Asthma is the most prevalent chronic illness in childhood affecting 7 million youth. Many youth with asthma face another risk factor in obesity. Obesity, in turn, increases disorders such as asthma.
