The primary aim of my community engaged research is to promote healthy behaviors aimed at managing or preventing chronic illness of vulnerable older adults through adoption and maintenance of physical activity and diet behaviors. Most recently, I am collaborating with community partners to: 1) adapt an evidence-based physical activity program, Physical Activity for Life for Seniors (PALS) for older adults living in rural communities; 2) culturally adapt PALS for older African Americans; and 3) develop, implement and evaluate Beneficial Bites for a Healthy Life nutrition program for older adults living in rural WI.
