New and emerging technologies are driving novel intervention approaches and enhancing existing interventions. Technology expands the geographic reach of evidence-based interventions to access underserved populations with programs which promote healthier lifestyles and can be used to improve the assessment of lifestyle behaviors, including nutrition.

Current Novel Research Efforts
