Her weight control research focuses on reducing disparities in obesity prevalence, and obesity prevention and treatment intervention outcomes in black women. As an InCHIP Affiliate, Dr. Blackman Carr will develop research using qualitative, quantitative and intervention methods to understand why black women experience subpar outcomes in weight control interventions. Prior to UConn, she conducted a comparative effectiveness study using a randomized control design to test how the standard behavioral weight loss treatment approach may be enhanced to produce better outcomes in black women.
