The purpose of my study is to examine the characteristics of mother-daughter communication about nutrition and exercise and how that communication influences the choices daughters make during their first year in college. I conducted ethnographic interviews in order to answer my proposed research question. These interviews were conducted via Skype as well as face-to-face. By using ethnographic interviews, I was able to gain insight into a dyadic relationship I could not observe in its natural environment.
Key words: mother-daughter communication, nutrition, exercise, ethnographic interviews
