Additional Information

Dr. Camhi’s educational and research training as a clinical exercise physiologist and physical activity epidemiologist has given her a unique perspective to apply to cardiovascular disease and obesity prevention.  Her main research objectives to date have focused on the interactions between 1) physical activity and fitness, 2) metabolic syndrome and cardiometabolic risk, and 3) obesity and body composition.   Dr. Camhi has studied these relationships in multiple data sets, across different age groups, and using a number of assessment and analytic methods.
