FRAN Professor, Jess Haines, part of massive healthy study recruiting hundreds of local families

Posted on Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

CSAHS own Jess Haines, is looking for 300 more families to partake in a health study aimed to determine how we establish healthy habits early in life.  Participating families will be followed for a 20 year period to look at how habits that were formed as children impact them as adults.  Haines is looking specifically for families with children between the age of 18 months and 6 years old, since this age range is critical for creating healthy habits that stick with kids as they age. 

Another part of the study is to help parents find ways to meet recommendations for healthy eating, exercise and sleep. One mother, who was part of the pilot study, believes it has helped her family by creating awareness.
