Research and Teaching Interests

Elizabeth Adams research includes the promotion of healthful dietary patterns to prevent pediatric obesity and reduce health inequities. Her work investigates parenting and family-based influences on children's obesogenic behaviors to prevent the intergenerational transmission of obesity. She also conducts investigations on federal policies (e.g., National School Lunch Program, Child Tax Credit) to ensure children from all income levels have access to healthful nutrition for chronic disease prevention.
