About Our Group

The FSNE-SPH Research Group is led by Dr. Stephanie Grutzmacher. Collaborating with the Food Supplement Nutrition Education program of the Maryland Cooperative Extension, Dr. Grutzmacher leads a team of doctoral, masters, and undergraduate students who engage in a range of research endeavours.

With a focus on applied, intervention, and prevention research, our projects explore program planning and evaluation, access to food, nutrition, family health behaviors, health literacy, and food insecurity. We use rigorious quantitative and qualitative research methods and present our research at local and national conferences.
