Associate professor, Nutrition, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Dr. Carbone works in community settings to examine how low income, culturally diverse populations (adults and children) with limited literacy skills attend to and process health information related to obesity prevention, diabetes management, cancer control, and food safety. She uses primarily a qualitative approach (individual interviews, focus groups, and observations) to collect her data. She is also interested in the use of new technologies to enhance pedagogical practices.
