JESSICA JARICK METCALFE, PhD, MPH
I am currently a postdoctoral research associate working under Dr. Melissa Prescott in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also collaborate with non-profit and industry partners and as a freelance research consultant.
I am passionate about creating developmentally informed intervention programs that positively impact the health and development of youth populations. My current research focuses on the development and evaluation of hands-on cooking and nutrition education programs for children, parents, and families.
