Behavioral Medicine Research Center

John P. Foreyt, Ph.D., director of the Behavioral Medicine Research Center, leads a research team that focuses on weight reduction through behavior modification and the use of anti-obesity drugs.

This center is a participant in a large, 12-year multicenter clinical trial of the effects of weight reduction on cardiovascular mortality in obese, diabetic patients.

In addition, this center develops weight loss programs for high-risk populations, particularly Mexican- and Afro-Americans.
