Angie Cradock, Co-Principal Investigator of the CHOICES Project and Deputy Director for the Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity, has been appointed as Principal Research Scientist in the Harvard Chan School’s Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences.

At the Prevention Research Center on Nutrition and Physical Activity, Cradock works with communities, community agencies, state and local government, and other partners to improve nutrition and physical activity. As part of the CHOICES Project, Cradock leads formal partnerships with state and local health agencies that provide technical assistance, training, and cost-effectiveness modeling support to these partners to inform decision-making for childhood obesity prevention strategies.

CHDS faculty Stephen Resch collaborates with Cradock as part of the investigative team for the CHOICES Project and CHDS PhD student Zach Ward serves as programmer/analyst. The CHDS Media Hub and CHDS Repository teams also assembled repository prototype resource packs related to obesity. The group plans to use the “Studio-Out-of-the-Box” prototype developed by Media Hub lead Jake Waxman to aid in the development and ultimate production of CHOICES-related research.
