University Profile


With a background in behavioral science, public health nutrition, and physical activity, Richard Rosenkranz has focused his research on the identification of modifiable influences of healthful eating and physical activity toward health promotion and chronic disease prevention. The framework underlying his work is to address person-environment interactions within behavioral settings and to develop, implement, and evaluate intervention programs designed to impact the influences on health behaviors. He is currently working on a range of intervention projects aimed at understanding the process of improving population health through facilitating healthful eating and physical activity in schools, out-of-school settings, workplaces, homes, and communities.
