Welcome to the Youth Scientific Interest Group (SIG),

The role of the Youth SIG is to serve as a forum to discuss ideas for manuscripts and ancillary study grant proposals related to obesity and cardiometabolic risk in Hispanic/Latino youth, using data from the SOL Youth ancillary study. SIG members have multidisciplinary expertise, including pediatrics, childhood obesity, cardiometabolic factors, psychosocial factors, acculturation, and family factors among others. We welcome investigators at any stage in their career.

We look forward to hearing from you!
