The Metos Group

The Metos group is informed through its work in community and clinical health and nutrition. Through such collaborations with researchers in the College of Health, Behavioral Science and Health, and Family and Preventive Medicine, her program evaluates local and national school health policies, particularly as they relate to obesity. A particular focus is on policy and systems approaches, seeking to understand how feasible, evidence-based alterations in the built environment can influence energy balance and improve health.
