Britteny Howell wins NSF Grant

Britteny Howell
Congratulations to our own NKU Anthropology part-time professor Britteny M.  Howell! Professor Howell, who is also a Ph.D. candidate in medical anthropology at the University of Kentucky, was awarded a $29,000 National Science Foundation Dissertation Improvement Grant from the Arctic Social Sciences Program for her upcoming research in Anchorage, AK. She was also awarded the Leslie White Award ($500) from the Central StatesAnthropological Society for this work. Here's a little info about her project:

The goal of this research is to examine the sociocultural factors that shape diet and physical activity practices as they influence nutritional status outcomes among Alaska Native elders (adults aged 65+ years) living in Anchorage. This study will (1) identify and evaluate the influence of sociocultural factors on dietary and physical activity patterns among urban Alaska Native elders, and (2) identify relationships between the sociocultural environment, diet, physical activity, and nutritional status outcomes (BMI) in this population. This 9-month long mixed-methods study employs participant observation, semi-structured interviews, food frequency, physical activity questionnaires, and anthropometric techniques. Anthropometric measurements will be used to determine BMI and the prevalence of under weight, normal weight, overweight, and obesity and will be tested with multiple regression techniques to determine the nature of the relationship between sociocultural factors and nutritional status outcomes in this population.

Way to go, Britteny! You do NKU Anthropology proud!
