My long-term goal is the improvement of cardiometabolic health in women through the prevention of pregnancy complications, namely gestational diabetes (GDM), and the creation of diet-based interventions to mitigate that risk.
My work with women in pregnancy, dietary patterns in ethnic minorities and in those at risk of diabetes has shown that modifiable factors may play a significant role in exacerbating or mitigating risk. Early identification of those at risk for diabetes, prior to measureable clinical onset, has the potential to allow for successful primary prevention of the disease through lifestyle changes.
