Eliana Perrin, MD, MPH

Dr. Perrin’s research at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill centers on the prevention of obesity and the role of pediatricians in helping young people achieve and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. She has examined pediatrician-parent communication regarding children’s weight, the benefits of body mass index screening, and obesity prevention among low-literacy, low-numeracy populations. She is one of five PIs on a multiple PI R01 from the NIH that proposes and studies a cluster randomized controlled trial of an intervention with parents of 2-month-old children and follows those children until they are 2 years old.
