Adams to Speak on Diet, Physical Activity in African-American Community

Published: Feb 11, 2010

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 11, 2010) Ingrid R. Adams will deliver the next installment of the Carter G. Woodson Lecture Series of the University of Kentucky African American Studies and Research Program (AASRP). Adams will speak on "Dietary and Physical Activity Habits of African Americans in Lexington, Ky.: Guidelines for Action" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, in 211 UK Student Center.

 

Adams's research focuses on designing and evaluating interventions related to weight management and physical activity. She has worked with children, adults and limited-resource audiences. Her other areas of interests include critical thinking and decision making.  Adams completed her doctorate in December 2006; her dissertation is titled, "Increasing dark green leafy, yellow/orange, cruciferous vegetables, tomatoes, and physical activity in a low-income population:  An evaluation of a critical thinking approach."

 

Named in honor of the noted scholar of African-American history, Carter G. Woodson, this lecture series is sponsored each year by AASRP. Initially developed as a faculty luncheon forum in 1992, the series has evolved into one of AASRP's cornerstone events. The lecture series is designed to enrich the campus and community's intellectual understanding of various topics and themes relating to issues of race and culture. It also provides faculty and graduate students with an academic arena to present their research as part of an organized forum.
 

The lecture is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. For more information contact AASRP at (859) 257-3593.
