Description

“Making Early Years Spaces Active Places”

Professor Dianne Ward’s research focuses on the prevention of obesity through school and community-based, multilevel interventions that promote physical activity and healthy eating. In this talk, Prof. Ward provides an overview of the important role played by early care and education settings—including preschools, nursery schools, and child minders—on the young child’s physical activity development. Based on her research, Prof. Ward will explain how environmental and social characteristics of these settings influence child outcomes.

Prof. Dianne Ward is professor in the Department of Nutrition at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and a Research Fellow at the UNC Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

The evening will include the presentation of awards to MSc students graduating in Nutrition Physical Activity & Public Health MSc
