Amy Eyler conducts research to advance the study of policies related to physical activity and obesity, as well as broader policy issues in public health. In addition to serving as deputy director of the Prevention Research Center in St. Louis, she co-directs the Policies for Action Child Health Weight Hub. This research hub is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to identify policies, laws, and regulations to build a culture of health, focusing on the implementation of nutrition and physical activity policies. Her involvement in these studies informs teaching in “Research Methods” and “Cross-Cutting Themes” in the Master of Public Health program.
