Dr. Bramante's research focuses on remotely delivered interventions to improve health in children and adults with overweight and obesity. This research includes remotely delivered clinical trials that assess interventions that may prevent severe COVID-19 and Long-COVID (covidout.umn.edu). Dr. Bramante also researches ways to assist daily health management at home, such as weight management interventions for children and adults seeking obesity treatment. Dr. Bramante sees patients in the comprehensive pediatric and adult weight management clinics. The M Health Fairview Comprehensive Weight Management Clinic treats each patient individually, acknowledging that obesity and weight loss are very complicated. Both clinics offer medication management, which is often indicated to address dysregulated pathways in the energy-regulatory systems that lead to excess weight so that lifestyle changes can be effective.
