DR. MARIAN TANOFSKY-KRAFF: DEVELOPMENTAL RESEARCH LABORATORY ON EATING AND WEIGHT BEHAVIORS
Dr. Tanofsky-Kraff studies eating disorders and obesity. Her research addresses the risks and consequences of disordered eating and overweight/obesity, with a focus on preventing both conditions. Military service members and their children appear to be at disproportionately high risk for eating and weight-related problems. Dr. Tanofsky-Kraff’s research involves the examination of eating behaviors using multiple psychological and physiological assessments. Her work also involves conducting psychotherapeutic programs to prevent excessive weight gain and eating disorders in lab-based and community settings among high risk individuals, with a focus on military and under-represented groups.
