At the beginning of my academic career my research focused on cardiac rehabilitation, but in the past few years I shifted my interest to a population in danger of developing cardiac disorders, that of obese children.  Since about half of obese school-aged children become obese adults, I decided to address the risk factors for cardiac disease from the primary prevention domain.
