RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am working to understand and (following Kurt Lewin's theory that the best way to understand something is to try to change it) organize social change that addresses health disparities. My research uses community-based participatory action research (CBPR) approaches to such change and investigates public health strategies for supporting for the public's creation of its own health. I'm particularly interested in documenting, assessing, and furthering sustainable food systems approaches to achieving equity, food security and healthy communities.  I am grateful for the opportunity to pursue these interests with many partners as project director and principal investigator for Food Dignity and Growing Resilience.
