Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I have been the principal investigator for federal grants related to supporting health behavior change in chronic conditions (diabetes, weight maintenance), particularly for rural populations. Among my scientific interests has been measuring self-reported health of populations and the influence health perception has on health behavior. I have developed online interventions for supporting health behavior changes, including physical activity action plans used by rural midlife women to support weight maintenance after weight loss.
