Preliminary evidence from a new national Dartmouth study suggests that external food cue responsiveness is measurable by parental report in preschool-age children. Responsiveness was greater among children with, versus without, usual TV advertisement exposure. These results may provide a better understanding of how an obesogenic food environment shapes the development of children’s eating behaviors at a young age.

A Geisel research team led by JoAnna Leyenaar has been approved for a $2.6 million award to compare the effectiveness of direct admission and admission through emergency departments for hospitalized children.
A team of Dartmouth researchers has found that mothers who have developed antibodies against the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1) can pass these antibodies to the nervous systems of their infants, protecting them from acquiring the virus.
Thanks to a collaboration between the pharmaceutical company MedImmune and Geisel structural biologist Jason McLellan, PhD, a long-awaited vaccine to protect infants from RSV may soon become a reality. Their findings are featured as this month’s cover story in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
Geisel researchers Peter F. Wright and Alka Dev, who work with the Dartmouth-Haiti Partnership, were announced as winners of the Children’s Prize Foundation’s (CPF) 4th annual Children’s Prize.
Researchers at the Geisel School of Medicine and Dartmouth-Hitchcock health system have been awarded up to $42 million by the National Institutes of Health to investigate environmental influences on child health.
Ask Suzanne Boulter MED’66 what she has been doing since she retired from clinical practice in 2010, and you won’t hear about a life of leisure. She is currently working on a nationwide American Academy of Pediatrics program called “Brush, Book, and Bed.”
In a new study scheduled for publication in The Journal of Pediatrics, Dartmouth researchers found that the more children watched television channels that aired ads for children’s fast food meals, the more frequently their families visited those fast food restaurants.
A new Dartmouth study found that admission rates to neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) are increasing for newborns of all weights. In effect, NICUs are increasingly caring for normal, or near normal, birth weight and term infants. The study, recently published online by JAMA Pediatrics, raises questions about possible overuse of this highly specialized and expensive care for some newborns.
A team of Geisel faculty, students, and pediatric staff at Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock received a Clinical Care Innovation Challenge Award from the Association of American Medical Colleges for creating a new model of care for in utero opioid-exposed and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome-affected newborns.
