    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Sauder's research examines how nutrition and other modifiable factors contribute to the early development of diabetes and obesity in vulnerable populations. She uses observational methods to identify key associations, and then translates these findings into prevention strategies with potential for widespread dissemination and implementation. Current research projects focus on women of child-bearing age, pregnant women and their offspring, and American Indian children.
