Faculty mentor: Rebecca Utz 

Our research project studies familial health habits between adolescents and their parents, with the goal of finding correlations between the two. We also studied these individual’s perspective of their health vs. how healthy they actually are. Our study gives us the opportunity to learn how to promote healthier habits at the family level, thus developing new methods of preventative medicine and minimizing young adults becoming chronically ill.
