Preventive and Clinical Outcomes in Diabetes

Northwestern studies have transformed diabetes care throughout the world, significantly improving life for diabetics. We are also deeply committed to developing innovative approaches to obesity through our research nutrition, behaviors, and health communications. Ongoing work is uncovering how new technologies can further improve clinical care, as well as how educational measures can minimize diabetes and its complications and improve well-being.

 Bonnie J. Spring Lab

Behavioral risk factors

Research Description

My laboratory conducts research on behavioral risk factors (obesity, poor quality diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use). We also develop cutting-edge technologies that support self-regulation and healthy behavior change. Finally, we create on-line learning tools to support skill mastery in evidence-based practice and team science.
