As a graduate stu- dent and postdoctoral fellow, she and her team developed and tested two health literacy and media literacy-focused interventions in both rural and urban schools. These interventions combined participatory action research approaches with advocacy training, with the dual goal of improving indi- vidual diet and physical activity behaviors as well as training students to be ambassadors for improving schools’ health-promoting environments. As an early-career researcher with an implementation science-focused National Institutes of Health career development award, she continues to promote youth-driven integration of health literacy interventions in settings where children and adolescents frequently make decisions about their health, as well as developing more pragmatic, age-appropriate, and mixed-methods strategies to measure child and adolescent health literacy.
