Dr. Domoff is the principal investigator for the Family Health Lab at Central Michigan University. The Family Health Lab seeks to promote the health and well-being of diverse, under-served children and families, with a specific focus on childhood obesity prevention and healthy media use. The Family Health Lab has developed a variety of clinical tools and evidence-based practices to assess and address problematic media use in children and adolescents. In collaboration with the Momentum Center at the University of Michigan and the Center for Human Growth and Development, the lab seeks to investigate mealtime media use in families with children at different stages of development (toddlers, preschoolers, and early adolescents) and test whether screen use predicts adiposity and other health outcomes across development.
In addition to examining the health outcomes of children’s media use, other ongoing projects seek to enhance the screening of and treatment for problematic media use in children and adolescents.
