Educational/Research/Service Interests

The mission of my research lab is to identify and test solutions that increase physical activity among at risk populations. The mission of the Community Health Teaching Center is to provide health services to our community while preparing future health leaders. I spend my time advancing both of these agendas with ultimate goal of improving the health and well-being of our community.
