My work focuses on preventing chronic disease,especially obesity and cardiovascular disease, in individuals, groups and populations. My recent work has been in evaluating school-based interventions for low income and minority youth. I am currently involved in a school and community based intervention in Colquitt County, GA and a clinic-based intervention in Athens, GA.


Since my retirement I have been involved in mentoring her doctoral student and working with new faculty on course development in nutrition education. 


Dr. Mullis is not currently involved in public service and outreach.
