Scott W. Powers, PhD, ABPP Professor and Director of Center for Child Behavior and Nutrition Department of Pediatrics; Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical PsychologyVisit the Powers Lab
Dr. Powers’ research program is in the area of dietary adherence in young children with chronic illnesses, particularly in children with cysfic fibrosis (CF) and those at risk of obesity. Current studies focus on testing behavioral and nutrition interventions to improve dietary adherence, health outcomes and quality of life for toddlers and preschoolers with cystic fibrosis, and investigating challenges to implementing nutrition and physical activity interventions for prevention and treatment of obesity in young children at risk (under age 5, with a focus on African American families) who participate in the Supplemental Program for low income Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). A major focus of Dr. Powers is to translate behavioral science into efficacious and effective interventions that improve nutritional and health outcomes for children.
Dr. Powers collaborates with Drs. Seeley, Woods, and Zeller on the Behavioral Assay Core for the Obesity Center. Additionally, he works with Dr. Stark investigating behavioral treatment for weight gain. Anticipated Core use: Biostatistical service.
