Over the last eight years, Dr. Kelly has worked with the St. Louis African American community identifying barriers to physical activity and healthy eating and identifying strategies to address these barriers. Dr. Kelly has particular expertise in translating research to practice from data collected in large-scale auditing efforts and using concept mapping with community, academic, and practice partners. Dr. Kelly will be responsible for providing technical assistance to our research project and particularly in developing and applying concept mapping.
