Making an Impact: CEHHS Spotlights Raynor
Long before obesity became a chronic American epidemic, Hollie Raynor was researching ways to prevent and treat it. Raynor, an associate professor of nutrition, combines her training in both psychology and nutrition to research and develop methods to prevent and treat obesity.
Bob Rider, dean of the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, believes Raynor’s specialized research puts her in a unique and important position in the field of nutrition.
“Hollie’s research on the area of nutrition, and its relationship to obesity is cutting-edge science and is providing essential information regarding the dietary habits of members of vulnerable populations,” Rider said.
Raynor began her college education in nutrition, but soon learned that if she wanted to make an impact, she would have to expand her studies.
