Dr. Young's research interests include the conduct of physical activity intervention trials for adults and adolescents based in primary care clinics and community settings. She also studies how physical inactivity and excess sedentary time are associated with cardiovascular risk and risk factors. She is interested in health behaviors during the transition from adolescence to young adulthood and factors associated with maintaining physical activity, low sedentary time, and healthy weight status. Much of her work involves studying racial/ethnic minority groups to identify and reduce health disparities.
