About

Our vision is a world without preventable nutrition-related diseases.

The Psychology of Eating And Consumer Health (PEACH) lab is based at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Our mission is to identify and evaluate policies and interventions that can improve the world’s diet and prevent nutrition-related diseases. We are committed to working with policymakers and influencers to ask important, creative, and timely research questions that can provide policymakers and institutions with science-based guidance. The lab’s Director is Christina Roberto, PhD.
