Dr. Braunschweig’s research interests focus on three major areas: (1) assessment of how nutritional intake and non-volitional nutritional support (parenteral and enteral feedings) impact overall risks and clinical outcomes in hospitalized patients; (2) the impact of obesity and body composition on disease risks in various populations including women, the disabled and minority populations; and (3) the design, implementation and assessment of exercise and nutrition interventions for obesity prevention and treatment.
