  • Develop and execute evaluation plans and data collection instruments to collect information on existing food systems, access to healthy foods, program delivery, and cultural relevance of curricula being delivered in childcare settings, schools, healthcare settings, community settings, and proximities.

The research will also include developing novel approaches to gauging community readiness and community capacity to create changes in the food environment. General support of Family Development will include developing evaluation plans for policy, systems, and environmental change and supervision of Graduate Research Assistants.
