Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Childhood obesity, children’s eating habits, infant and child behavior and development

Stephanie Anzman-Frasca is an expert on childhood obesity with training in child development. She can speak to media about obesity risks and prevention and encouraging healthy eating habits in youth.

Anzman-Frasca’s goal is to make healthy choices easier for children through research targeting individual behavior (e.g., self-control) and the environment (e.g., accessibility of healthy meals in restaurants).

Other interests include how temperament and demographics influence effectiveness of obesity prevention and how obesity prevention efforts affect other outcomes (e.g., academics). She has explored the latter by studying school breakfast and parenting.
