Dr. Jason Mendoza’s research seeks to eliminate inequities in childhood physical activity and nutrition outcomes among racial/ethnic minorities, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, people living with diabetes, and cancer survivors through innovative behavioral interventions and policies in school and community settings. Dr. Mendoza’s projects include physical activity promotion (walking/biking to school, wearable physical activity trackers), screen time (TV) reduction, and examining the relationship of food insecurity to outcomes of chronic disease (diabetes).
