About HOPE Lab
The HOPE Lab is focused on improving evidence-based guidelines in vulnerable cohorts to improve health outcomes. Dr. Colleen Spees, the Director of HOPE Lab, is currently involved in several biobehavioral garden-based interventions, the most recent RCT involves obesity and disease preventive behaviors among families in low-income, low-access communities. With a living laboratory housed at the Waterman Farm Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory (Columbus OH), the collaborations within HOPE Lab run as deep as the soil.
