The goal of Dr. Bauer's research is to identify important social and behavioral determinants of nutrition and obesity among children and effectively translate this etiologic research into community-based policy and programmatic interventions. Much of her current work focuses on identifying parenting strategies that effectively promote children's healthy eating while preventing disordered eating behaviors and obesity, and collaborating with schools and childcare settings to create healthy nutrition environments for children.
