Prevention

Preventing Disease and Disability 
By intervening early, we can prevent downstream disability and complications from conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and lung disease. Much of our research in this area looks at ways to improve weight management, increase physical activity, and decrease substance use, through interactive technology-based tools that patients can use independently at home. Our research is examining:

  • Tailored, interactive online feedback tools to help patients enhance and sustain their physical activity programs and lose weight.
  • Personalized web-based tools to help Veterans stop smoking.
