Sharon Sugerman Recognized by USDA for Her Contributions to SNAP-Ed

Sharon Sugerman, Director of Research and Evaluation for the Center for Wellness and Nutrition, was the recipient of an award honoring her contributions to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-Education (SNAP-Ed) program from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Western Regional Office at a SNAP-Ed Forum held in Sacramento, CA on March 18, 2015. The award was presented by Andrew Riesenberg, Team Leader for USDA Western Regional Office, during the closing session of the conference.

Sharon is also second author on a recently-published journal article in Preventing Chronic Disease entitled “Reach of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program—Education Interventions and Nutrition and Physical Activity-Related Outcomes, California, 2011—2012.” This study combined information on the interventions of the USDA SNAP-Ed with 5,927 interview responses from the California Health Interview Survey to investigate associations between levels of intervention reach in low-income census tracts in California and self-reported physical activity and consumption of fruits and vegetables, fast food, and sugar-sweetened beverages.
