I am committed to the dissemination and implementation of evidence- and community-based health promotion programs for older adults with a focus on physical activity interventions. As lead of the Coordinating Center for the CDC Healthy Brain Research Network, I oversee our efforts to advance a public health research, translation, and dissemination agenda that promotes cognitive health.
