My research focuses on developing and evaluating innovative nutrition education programs for adults with low-income/limited-resources. My emphasis includes using qualitative methods to better understand the user experience of nutrition education programs, and incorporate user feedback to tailor nutrition education programs to serve the target audience.
I work with Dr. Jung Sun Lee's Community Nutrition lab on the UGA SNAP Ed program. I have developed an eLearning nutrition education program using a multidicipinary approach including eLearning design experts, marketing professionals, videography experts, and extensive technical support. The program, titled Food eTalk, is tailored to the specific needs of low-income Georgian adults, with a mobile (smartphone) based approach. Access to Food eTalk is available at www.foodtalk.org under the "LEARN ONLINE" tab.
