Mei-Wei Chang’s research interest focuses on weight management among low-income overweight and obese mothers, both pregnant and postpartum. Her research activities include design and testing of innovative community-based lifestyle intervention (stress management, healthy eating, and physical activity) that can be adopted, disseminated, implemented and sustained in community settings. Her innovative interventions include theory-based culturally sensitive videos that feature peers from the target audience. Personal motivation to make behavioral change is enhanced by interactive planning tools and interpersonal peer support.
