Research conducted in the Salvy Laboratory focuses on developing and implementing scalable and sustainable obesity and diabetes interventions across the life course. Much of this work focuses on environmental, intergenerational and social transmission, and seeks to understand how the world around us influences our behavior and overall health. Over the last nine years, Salvy and her colleagues have spearheaded the cultural tailoring and clinical implementation of behavioral obesity and diabetes interventions in economically, ethnically and racially diverse populations in Southern California and Central Alabama.
