MPH faculty and students implemented the MANE (Methodical Approach to Activity and Nutrition Education) program at a local community elementary school in efforts to promote healthy lifestyles among children. Dr. Kara Hamilton, Dr. Shewanee Howard-Baptiste, and Professor Melissa Powell were awarded a $12,000 grant through the UTC Equity Fellows program. Their work focuses on advancing the design of a physical activity and nutrition program (MANE) using a Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach in the Orchard Knob community. Two MPH students, Kimberly Reid and Zach Farley, served as the project coordinators, and other MPH and undergraduate students assisted with the program.
