What are the health benefits of mind-body exercises such as Feldenkrais, tai chi, yoga etc.?

Health benefits of mind-body exercises are 'under-researched' compared to health benefits of aerobic exercises. Many people do not meet the current physical activity recommendations for maintaining health, in particular older adults and individuals with chronic health issues. Thus, it is of high importance to facilitate the potential health effects of mind-body exercises. Funding for well-designed randomized controlled ...more »

Is there a correlation between different transit mode use and bmi?

Goal: To determine whether transit mode choice and travel time is associated with bmi and health status Identify 3 neighborhoods with similar avg incomes, but different transport options Select a random sample of households from each neighborhood. One adult provides info on transit choice, travel time, destination distance, bmi and health status. Expected outcome: Among similar income levels, adults who drive less have ...more »

Can improvement in emotional health using psychotherapy increase physical health while reducing risk factors of obesity.

Black Therapists Rock engages over 19,000 psychotherapists who work with vulnerable populations. We have noticed a correlation of improved health outcomes in clients who have utilized Internal Family Systems (IFS), a psychotherapy model that focuses on healing the emotional wounds developed in childhood. We wish to expand upon this data, by employing more therapists to use this model, while advocating/recruiting participants ...more »

How environmental chemicals mediate/influence comorbid chronic diseases?

Two of the greatest public health challenges facing the US today are obesity and asthma. These two comorbid conditions are also implicated in downstream disorders such as diabetes and CVD. There is evidence that environmental exposures contribute to a rapid increase in disease incidence. Using the AoU cohort to understand how environmental exposures exacerbate the cormbidity between these conditions and subsequent disease ...more »

How are sleep, sedentary behavior and physical activity related to one another, and interactively, related to health?

Sleep (quantity, quality, timing), sedentary behavior, and physical activity of various intensities, affect each other and many health outcomes. Health conditions affect individuals’ sleep and activity patterns. Capturing 24-hour device data repeatedly will allow exploration of multiple hypotheses about sleep, sedentary behavior, physical activity and health. Longitudinal data will allow exploration of causality in both ...more »

What is the prevalence of Ehlers-Danlos in chronic pain patients

Conduct the Brighton and Brighton screening tests on all pain patients to screen for Ehlers-Danlos. This is especially relevant for fibromyalgia and idiopathic joint pain groups who have not had a diagnosis yet. Goal would be to recognize that this is not a rare disease, and hopefully start screening children to prevent long term chronic pain, as well as getting answers to patients that have historically been neglected ...more »

Evaluate Age-related Microbiota Changes and their impact in Health, and in Chronic Disease Prevention, Treatment and Progression

The microbiome variations have been associated with health and disease status in cross-sectional studies. There is a need to examine these associations in a longitudinal fashion and to establish baseline changes in health and disease over a lifespan. All of Us Together provides a game-changing amount of longitudinal data on enough individuals to begin to map the complex relationship between exposures (diet, antibiotics, ...more »

Wearables for capturing sleep and circadian information across day/night and long-term.

Wearables that can capture sleep and circadian information-across the day/night and over time--should be included. Activity monitors, EEG, ECG and Oximetry measurement are increasingly accessible with miniaturization of technology. Consumer interest in many of these devices has accelerated development and driven costs down. Analysis of these data-perhaps using open-platforms- hold promise for deriving quantitative measurements ...more »

Is the human oral and fecal microbiota associated with chronic disease risk factors, such as obesity and metabolic syndrome?

The human microbiota has been found to be associated with a number of health conditions, such as obesity. However, these studies have been relatively small and from convenience samples. It is important to understand how the human microbiota impacts these chronic disease risk factors in order to prevent future disease development. We propose collecting oral and fecal samples to determine associations with many chronic ...more »

What are the molecular subtypes of hypertension?

Hypertension is a very common chronic disease that significantly increases risk of stroke and myocardial infarction. Though it's clinical definition is simple based on blood pressure it's molecular etiology is quite complex and poorly understood. This project would seek to identify genetic, epigenetic (DNA methylation), and metabolomic "subtypes" of hypertension both in isolation and as clusters. These subtypes may be ...more »
