LaVoi, Nelson, Stovitz, and Neumark-Sztainer published in Current Sports Medicine Reports

LaVoiN-2010.jpgDr. Nicole LaVoi, Kinesiology lecturer of sport sociology, recently co-authored a publication with some colleagues in Public Health and Epidemiology.

The article makes the case that youth sport might not be health-promoting for some young athletes who sit on the bench and get little to no physical activity, and then eat poor quality, calorie-laden foods.

The article, "Do youth sports prevent pediatric obesity? A systematic review and commentary" is authored by Nelson, Toben F.; Stovitz, Steven D., MD; Thomas, Megan, MPH; LaVoi, Nicole M., PhD; Bauer, Katherine W., PhD; Neumark-Sztainer, Dianne, PhD. View the article here.
