Quoted: Jennifer Emond on TV Ads and Childhood Obesity

“For now, our best advice to parents is to switch their child to commercial-free TV programming to help avoid pestering for foods seen in commercials,” says the Geisel School of Medicine’s Jennifer Emond in an Albany Daily Star Gazette story about a new study, conducted by Emond and colleagues, that focused on national television advertisements featuring two fast-food chains.

Emond is an assistant professor of biomedical data science and of pediatrics at Geisel.
