Barr-Anderson is PI on grant from General Mills Foundation

Daheia Barr-Anderson

Along with colleagues from the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health in the School of Public Health, Dr. Daheia Barr-Anderson, assistant professor in Kinesiology, received a grant for $38,651 from the General Mills Foundation to disseminate PALA+Peers and PALA+Parents program materials. The PALA+ programs (Presidential Active Lifestyle Award, part of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign) are interventions that enhance the already established PALA. The enhanced interventions were designed with a peer and a parent component to increase the impact of the PALA program. Dr. Barr-Anderson is PI for this award.

The dissemination project is a collaboration with General Mills and the program materials for both PALA+Peers and PALA+Parents will be available through the General Mills Box Top program.
