Name:

Lauren B. Raine

Current Position:

Aug 2016 - Currently Postdoctoral Research Associate , Department of Psychology,  Northeastern University, Boston MA

Education:

BS, Kinesiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

MPH, Master of Public Health, University of Illinois

PhD, Kinesiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Research Interest:

Dr. Raine's research interest is in neurocognitive kinesiology; specifically the relationships between physical activity, fitness, and (excess) body mass on brain health and cognition in children.  She has examined these relationships using behavioral and neuroelectric measures to study the influence of acute and chronic physical activity on cognition. She is also interested in the relationship between body composition and cognition, as the obesity epidemic continues to spread in children.  She hopes to gain a better understanding of the relationship between body composition and cognitive health that will lead to an increased awareness about the inactivity levels of children and the vast health problems associated with the associated behaviors.

MPH Practicum Experience:

Dr. Raine worked with personnel from Chicago's Lurie Children's Hospital on a variety of topics related to childhood obesity. Projects included examining infant growth and later weight status, primarily overweight and obesity, developing a protocol to identify certain prompts/ questions within patient charts, and conducting practice surveys. In addition, Dr. Raine created a survey to better understand how pediatricians feel about weight gain in infancy, and what measures they might be taking to prevent unhealthy weight gain. In addition, the group developed a survey for parents of young children to assess issues of feeding, physical activity, and the advice their child's pediatrician provides.
