Welcome to the BRIE lab

Our lab focuses on discovering ways to help people eat healthier, lose weight, and prevent chronic disease. To achieve this goal, the BRIE lab focuses on ways to use emerging technology to assist with dietary self-monitoring, physical activity tracking, and provision of social support. In addition, the BRIE lab also focuses on dietary approaches that do not require dietary self-monitoring, such as the vegan and vegetarian diets. Led by Dr. Brie Turner-McGrievy in the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina, we’ve conducted a number of research clinical trials in the following areas:

  • Emerging technologies to create health behavior changes
  • mHealth and eHealth
  • Vegetarian and vegan dietary approaches in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases
  • Diet quality and assessment
  • Obesity prevention and treatment
