Kerry McIver Publishes Article from CPARG TEDDY Study


TEDDY is a large, multi-center study of children who are at genetic rick for development of Type 1 diabetes. The study is managed by the University of South Florida, and data are collected at three sites in the United States (Washington State, Colorado, Georgia/Florida) and in three European countries (Finland, Germany, Sweden). CPARG investigators Kerry McIver, Marsha Dowda and Russell Pate, in collaboration with other TEDDY researchers, recently published a study[pdf] that examined physical activity and sedentary behavior in 5 year old children participating in the TEDDY study. The children wore accelerometers to assess their physical activity and sedentary behavior. Comparisons were made across countries and across sites in the U.S.
