Research statement: My research focus is developing research-based continuing medical education courses (webinars and self-study modules) for health care professionals. My aim is to provide health care professionals with the latest research, recommendations and realistic methods to integrate brief nutrition counseling sessions with patients. My dissertation spans three courses on the following issues our health care system faces including Type 2 Diabetes, Weight Management and Heart Healthy Living. Our courses are launched on the state wide platform, Texas Medical Association, allowing statewide visibility of our courses and the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at Texas A&M University.
