Hodges Receives NIH Funding

Congratulations to Associate Professor and Director of the Biobehavioral Lab, Eric Hodges, PhD, FNP-BC, who recently received funding for his study “Enhancing Caregiver-Infant Communication to Prevent Obesity” from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Hodges will serve as principal investigator on a team with Cathi Propper, Center for Developmental Science, as co-investigator and Todd Schwartz as Statistician.

The study, which will run through March 2018, is designed to test a novel intervention to help parents and preverbal infants better understand one another during feeding and to offer new insight into how self-regulation of energy intake develops during infancy.
