President and CEO | Gramercy Research Group, Inc. | Winston-Salem, NC
Pilot Project: Policy and environmental supports for healthy eating & exercise on college campuses
Her pilot project will assess environmental and policy supports for healthy eating and PA at an HBCU. A Predominantly White Institution (PWI) in the same city will be assessed for comparison and to identify disparities. A mixed methods approach will be used to collect quantitative and qualitative data on the environment and student/faculty/staff knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and preferences associated with health status and health-related behaviors. Data will be used to further understand/identify strategies to improve health among college students, particularly racial/ethnic minority students who are at higher risk for developing chronic disease, and to improve supports for healthy eating and physical activity on college campuses.
