Rebecca Seguin-Fowler, Associate Director
A public health scientist with expertise in community-based nutrition and physical activity intervention research, Dr. Rebecca Seguin-Fowler will provide administrative leadership for the organization’s social and behavioral intervention research initiative. She also will serve as the Healthy Texas community health research director, leading and fostering closer integration of AgriLife Research and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension efforts.

To date, more than 4,000 health educators in 48 states have been trained to implement these community-based physical activity and nutrition programs in predominantly non-urban areas. Seguin-Fowler has secured more than $12M in competitive funding to support her research, with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
