Welcome to the NEBS Lab!

We are the Nutrition Education and Behavioral Science (NEBS) Lab. Our lab focuses on better understanding the multiple influences on dietary behavior and developing corresponding interventions to improve health especially in underserved populations. Currently, we have several projects focused on early childhood obesity prevention. Led by Dr. Amy Mobley in the Department of Health Education and Behavior in the College of Human Health and Performance at the University of Florida, we’ve conducted and strive to pursue research in the following areas:

  • Ecological and behavioral approaches to preventing and treating obesity throughout the lifespan
  • Parental influences on early childhood feeding and obesity risk
  • Nutrition education and behavior
  • mHealth and eHealth methods to improve dietary and physical activity behaviors
  • Food security
  • Underserved populations
