Dr. Miriam Nelson, professor of nutrition at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and founder and director of the John Hancock Research Center on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Prevention at Tufts University, has embarked on her StrongWomen Across America Tour.
Nelson describes her aims for the tour on the StrongWomen website:
Beginning in Kenai, Alaska and traveling east to Brodheadsville, Pennsylvania, the StrongWomen Across America tour will focus on eight small communities with active StrongWomen programs. Each community has developed what I call a Change Club – a group of 15 to 20 motivated women who will work to change the physical activity and food environments in their own communities. It is my hope that this work will not only impact those individual communities, but will create a ripple effect that will reach communities across the nation.
Check out her Twitter account, Facebook page and most recent book, The Social Network Diet, which gives an interesting spin on how to perpetuate a healthy lifestyle through innovative social networking.
