Healthy Kids - Research

Healthy Kids conducts research with others in our health system. We also partner with outside organizations to advance our knowledge in this area and ensure we are using evidence-based treatment practices. Past collaborations have included Dr. Greg Welk, Dr. Lorraine Lanngingham-Foster, and Dr. Maren Wolff from Iowa State University examining the implementation of the American Academy of Pediatrics Stage 1 and Stage 2 treatment in the primary care setting. Prior research, also with Dr. Welk, validated the SOPLAY observation tool with an accelerometry-based physical activity monitor.
