    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I have a physical activity, nutrition, and health promotion background, with specific training in exercise physiology, health behavior change program development and evaluation, health psychology, physical activity epidemiology, and community nutrition. My research includes sedentary and physical activity behavior and healthy eating habits, including social-ecological determinants of these behaviors and their association with chronic disease in pediatric populations. My recent research emphasis is focused on the influence of child care and the home environment on health behaviors and outcomes for young children.
