Lessons Learned from Implementation Science Networks

Hosted by Dr. Marie-Therese Schultes 
Interviewee Courtney Luecking

Courtney began her doctoral training in the Nutrition Department at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2014. Prior to that she earned dual Master's degrees from Saint Louis University in Nutrition and Public Health, Courtney is also a Registered Dietitian with clinical, community, and research experience. Her research interests center on identifying mechanisms of change and supportive implementation strategies for health promotion and prevention interventions focused on nutrition and physical activity. She also has a strong interest in the influence of communication on health behaviors. Her dissertation aims to quantify the fidelity to implementation of a newly developed social marketing campaign to help early care and education providers and parents partner to promote healthy eating and active play among preschool-aged children. This information will then be used to specify how the campaign worked, for whom it worked, and under what conditions the campaign was successful so that an enhanced implementation strategy may be tested for increasing the level of parent involvement with the campaign.
