Updated November 6, 2019

The BYU Radio program “Top of Mind With Julie Rose” — which airs nationally on SiriusXM Radio — interviewed community health and health behavior PhD graduate Kelseanna Hollis-Hansen, PhD, a former graduate research assistant in the Department of Pediatrics, was interviewed about her study that examined the negative effect opening new supermarkets in low-income communities had on fruit and vegetable consumption. “We can’t just exist on fruits and vegetables. We need access to protein and grains and other foods, so grocery stores should stay. We just need to find a way to make them healthier,” said Hollis-Hansen, a recent doctoral graduate of the School of Public Health and Health Professions. Buffalo Business First also did a Q&A with Hollis-Hansen.
