Anne Mathews, Ph.D., R.D.N. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition with IFAS. Her research interests are in determining and establishing environmental and behavioral supports for the adoption of healthy eating, activity, and stress management habits.
Dr. Mathews believes that modifying disease risk through “improvements” in nutrition and physical activity routines is a powerful treatment. Her current and previous work targets populations that may most benefit from improvements in lifestyle, such as those with a history of cancer and type 2 diabetes as well as those in a transitional period of their life, such as later adolescence and early adulthood.
