Brandy-Joe Milliron, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition Sciences. She is a community nutrition scientist with training in cancer prevention and management, bio-behavioral sciences, nature-based health promotion and program evaluation. While she has a broad background in obesity prevention and management, her current research explores the ways in which nutrition, wellness and healing behaviors promote healthy cancer survivorship and family caregiver health. Her research also focuses on designing better nutrition programs by improving the understanding of how people’s interaction with their environment affects their nutritional choices.
As a teacher, she is passionate about training the next generation of nutrition scientists both through mentorship and the undergraduate and graduate-level courses in Community Nutrition and Global Nutrition.
In addition to cancer prevention and management, her research spans from global nutrition and maternal, infant and young child feeding, to garden-based nutrition education and the evaluation of community food projects. Additionally, she is passionate about improving our understanding of how exposure to nature influences health behaviors and quality of life through the lifespan.
