Tiffany L. Young, PhD, Center for Health Equity Research (CHER) affiliate, will present “Productive Aging – An Opportunity for Impacting Communities and the Health of Older Adults” and receive feedback.
Dr. Young completed her doctorate at the University of South Florida (USF), School of Aging Studies. During her tenure at USF she also earned a cognate in Evaluation from the Department of Educational Measurement & Research. She was awarded the University of South Florida (USF) Graduate Community Scholars Grant for her research on developing and evaluating community programs for older adults. More specifically, her dissertation research utilized mixed methods and the community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to develop, implement, and evaluate an intergenerational physical activity program for kinship families.
Her current interest is in utilizing CBPR as a framework for engaging community stakeholders in the design, implementation and evaluation of programs to address broad community health issues. She was recently awarded a Diversity Research Supplement by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute which will support her work that utilizes CBPR to adapt and evaluate an evidence-based lifestyle intervention that will address cardiovascular disease risk factors among older adults in a rural community.
This event is sponsored by the UNC Center for Health Equity Research.
