Research Interests

Dr. Young’s research interests are in the conduct of community-based physical activity intervention trials, specifically for minority women and adolescent girls, segments of the population that suffer the most profound health consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. She is also establishing a research agenda to investigate methods to prevent childhood obesity, particularly in African American youth. She is working to ascertain how targeted food marketing to African American communities may contribute to obesity prevalence, and how partnerships can be formed with communities and strategies developed to halt this practice.
