Texas Researcher Awarded Grant to Evaluate Methods of Measuring Physical Activity

Dr. Kelley Gabriel, assistant professor of epidemiology, human genetics and environmental sciences at The University of Texas School of Public Health Austin Regional Campus, has been awarded a two-year grant from the American Heart Association to develop and evaluate composite physical activity scores in population-based research studies. The study, a project of the Michael and Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living, aims to address the problem of imprecise and incomplete physical activity assessment in research and intervention studies.
