Leslie Frankel, Ph.D., has been working on health disparities research for over 10 years. Her research focuses on obesity prevention and examination of parent interactions with their children around eating, including how parents' responses to children's cues around hunger and feelings of satiety affect their children's eating habits and obesity.

Frankel is certified as a Family Life Educator by the National Council on Family Relations and aims to develop interventions for parents to help children develop healthy eating habits.
