Sep 23, 2008

Linda S. Adair, CPC Fellow and Professor in the Department of Nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), was awarded funding for the project "Modeling the Developmental Origins of Adult Disease Risk Factors."

Using data from the Cebu (Philippines) Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Survey, this study will use structural equation models to identify the complex pathways through which cardiovascular disease risk factors develop from the prenatal period to young adulthood.

Kenneth A. Bollen, CPC Fellow and Henry Rudolph Immerwahr Professor of Sociology at UNC, is a co-investigator.

This project is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, a branch of the National Institutes of Health, through June 2013.
