Daheia Barr-Anderson's research focuses on physical activity, sedentary behaviors, and obesity prevention in children and adolescents, especially African-American females. Her research examines multi-level factors that influence physical activity among youth and is testing the efficacy of community- and family-based interventions designed to increase physical activity and improve nutrition among sedentary individuals. Professor Barr-Anderson is also exploring how factors within the home activity and food environments interact with individual and interpersonal factors to contribute to overweight and obesity in children, adolescents, and their families.
