    Benjamin Chrisinger

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Bio I am committed to research that helps us understand relationships between the built environment and health, especially health disparities. With colleagues and mentors at the Stanford Prevention Research Center, I am pursuing research on neighborhood perceptions of healthy food access, individual and neighborhood-level measures of wellness and their relationships to the built environment, and community-engaged food environment audits.

    I have previously examined efforts to open new supermarkets in underserved areas ("food deserts") by considering development processes, store-level outcomes, and community and customer experiences. With colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania, I am currently helping analyze interactions between the food environment and healthy purchasing within the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and have also written about the role of SNAP in community development in outlets ranging from the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, to The Baltimore Sun and Planetizen. In previous collaborations, I have researched food purchasing behavior and store type interactions, the role of curbside produce vendors in low-income neighborhoods, and the prevalence of automatic external defibrillators AEDs across different land uses. I completed my doctoral training in City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania.

  • Stephen P. Fortmann, MD

    Stephen P. Fortmann, MD

    C.F. Rehnborg Professor in Disease Prevention, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Fortmann's interests include population-level (community) prevention of cardiovascular disease, the epidemiology and prevention of chronic diseases, and the effects of the built environment on health. He has conducted research projects addressing tobacco use cessation, tobacco control policy, the role of retail marketing on youth tobacco use, nutrition education, blood pressure control, and lipid disorders.

  • Christopher Gardner

    Christopher Gardner

    Professor (Research) of Medicine (Stanford Prevention Research Center)

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The role of nutrition in individual and societal health, with particular interests in: plant-based diets, differential response to low-carb vs. low-fat weight loss diets by insulin resistance status, chronic disease prevention, randomized controlled trials, human nutrition, community based studies, Community Based Participatory Research, sustainable food movement (animal rights and welfare, global warming, human labor practices), stealth health, nutrition policy, nutrition guidelines

  • Jennifer Hartle

    Jennifer Hartle

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, SCRDP/ Heart Disease Prevention

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Hartle's research investigates environmental exposures and their effects on human health, with a special focus on environmental exposures from the food system. Her research interests are in exposure science, risk assessment, and environmental epidemiology and how they can be used to inform environmental health and food system policy. Jennifer's doctoral research at Johns Hopkins focused on identifying inequities in dietary environmental exposures. For her dissertation, she examined bisphenol-A (BPA) exposures in the food system to determine vulnerable populations and to develop exposure prevention strategies. Dr. Hartle's current research projects explore environmental endocrine disrupting chemicals and obesity.

  • William Haskell

    William Haskell

    Professor (Research) of Medicine, Emeritus

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My major research interests and activities over the next several years will focus on the development and evaluation of the objective measurement of physical activity in free-living populations using a variety of sensing devices and mobile phones for data collection and processing. Also, I will continue to direct the Stanford Heart Network with the major mission being to assist community-based CVD prevention/treatment programs implement more effective heart attack and stroke prevention programs.
