Early Non-Response to an Internet-Delivered Weight Loss Program:  How to Know it When You See it and What to Do
 

Dr. Unick is an Assistant Professor within the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University’s Medical School and at the Miriam Hospital’s Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center.  Unick will highlight the variability in treatment response to behavioral weight loss interventions and offer strategies for improving weight loss outcomes within Internet-delivered programs. Specifically, she will provide data to support a stepped-care approach for adapting treatment based upon initial weight loss response.

Tech Tuesday Talks is a free, monthly seminar series bringing together researchers from across the USC campus who share an interest in technology-assisted health promotion and disease prevention interventions and research.  The series presents a forum to learn about one another’s work, spark collaborations, as well as introduce students to the ongoing research conducted on the USC campus which incorporates technology in health promotion.  All interested faculty, staff, students and the general public are invited to attend.  Tech Tuesday Talks are presented on the fourth Tuesday of the month in Discovery I Building, Room 140 at noon.  To learn more, visit http://techealth.sc.edu/tech-tuesday-talks or contact magradey@mailbox.sc.edu.
