The research, funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health, focuses on how to motivate young people to make lifestyle changes that can help them avoid health problems, including overweight, obesity and diabetes. 

It’s called the MOVE study, a research project that, as the name suggests, aims to motivate teens to get moving more.

“We’ve developed new protocols for treating diabetes in children, but nothing in terms of teaching those at risk to avoid the disease,” said Kenneth Copeland, M.D., co-principal investigator of the study. Copeland holds the Paul and Ann Milburn Chair in Pediatric Diabetes at the OU College of Medicine and director of pediatric programs at Harold Hamm Diabetes Center.
