CUSA Graduate Researcher Connor Harron was recently hired by the RAND corporation and USC to work on the Military Teenagers’ Environments, Exercise, and Nutrition Study (M-TEENS) as a data collector this Spring. Harron will be traveling to Military bases around the country to assess how the food and physical activity environments around military bases can affect military children’s diet, physical activity patterns, and body weight.
The Military Teenagers’ Environments, Exercise, and Nutrition Study (M-TEENS) is a joint initiative between the University of Southern California (USC) and RAND Corporation. The project examines how the food and physical activity environments in military children’s schools and neighborhoods influence their diet, physical activity, sedentary behaviors, and body weight. This study will help people learn more about what factors influence the health and well-being of military children.
