Join Dr. Nancy Sherwood for a webinar on maintaining health through diet and activity during a pandemic. During the webinar, Dr. Sherwood will share insights into how public health practitioners and individuals can encourage healthy behaviors and greater well-being for themselves and their communities through diet and activity. Drawing on her research expertise, she’ll share practical ideas for maintaining health during the pandemic, and beyond.
Dr. Sherwood is an Associate Professor in the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health with the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. Her research focuses on the development and evaluation of behavioral obesity prevention and treatment interventions across the lifespan with a focus on reaching engaging lower income, ethnically diverse children and their parents. A prominent theme of her work is integrating obesity treatment and prevention interventions into health care settings and creating connections between health system and community-based interventions to enhance efficacy and increase the potential for sustainability and dissemination. Additionally, she is interested in newer intervention science methodologies that improve our ability to tailor interventions in order to deliver “the right intervention to the right person at the right time.”
This webinar is free and designed for public health professionals, although students and interested individuals are welcome to attend. The webinar will be recorded and available online following the presentation.
