Sue Groth, PhD, WHNP-BC, FAANP, professor at the University of Rochester School of Nursing, centers her research on the study of obesity and the behavioral, genetic, and environmental factors that contribute to this complex disease and the sequelae of this disease. Specifically, Groth is interested in weight gain among pregnant women and the long-term effects of that weight on both mothers and their children.

The overarching goal of Groth’s research has always been to improve the health of women, with a focus on obesity from both behavioral and biological perspectives. An important component of her research over the past few years is the interplay of behavioral and biological influencers on development of cardiometabolic risk in the first years after pregnancy, as well as in the longer-term. An expansion of this is a study of the impact of pregnancy and postpartum phthalate exposure on maternal cardiometabolic health.

Her research has been funded by national organizations such as the National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Groth’s work is informed by her 25-year career as a women’s health care practitioner, primarily caring for low-income underserved women and adolescents..

Current Focus

As a nurse scientist my goal is to improve the health of individuals, particularly as it relates to obesity. Obesity is a complex disease that is the result of genetic and environmental components. My research is focused on behavioral, genetic and environmental factors that contribute to obesity. As a women's health nurse practitioner my particular interest is the weight that women gain during childbearing and the long-term effects of that weight gain on both mothers and their children. My interest in the problem of obesity stems from years of practice where women frequently lamented that they gained weight when they had their children and then never lost it.
