ASPIRE-II (PI: Frongillo)         07/01/17-9/30/18

Internal USC Grant

Positioning USC for Global Prominence in Research on Prevention and Management of Chronic Disease

This project has specific objectives to 1) generate knowledge related to screening and follow up of common chronic diseases and to modifiable risk factors for informing interventions, and 2) strengthen interdisciplinary collaborations within USC and among USC and other leading scientific and implementing institutions in the United States, Latin American, and the Caribbean.

Role: Co-Investigator and Study Leader for one of six individual studies that are part of the overall grant (Study title: Mobile health for innovative strategies protecting adults from risk factors for chronic diseases)

 

R01DK056746 (PIs: West and Harvey)           08/01/15-6/30/20 NIH/NIDDK

Internet Assisted Obesity Treatment Enhanced by Financial Incentives

The primary aims of this study are to examine whether financial incentives added to a proven online lifestyle program improve weight loss outcomes and to quantify the incremental cost-effectiveness of the incentive-based program compared to an identical program delivered without incentives.

Role: Interventionist

 

Completed

ASPIRE-1, Track 2-B (PI: Monroe)     05/16/15-08/15/17
