The finalists of DIPA 2020: Jess Haines

Every week, we are making the focus on one of the 10 finalists of the 2nd Edition of the Danone International Prize for Alimentation. Today, learn more about Jess Haines.

” I am an Associate Professor of Applied Nutrition at the University of Guelph, Canada. My research spans the entire knowledge-to-action cycle. I bridge cutting-edge epidemiologic and direct observational research on the predictors of sustainable healthy eating with the development of novel and scalable behavior change interventions and knowledge mobilization tools. My interdisciplinary approach has led to pioneering advances in our understanding of how best to support sustainable healthy eating among families.

I applied to DIPA because the award will allow my team to mobilize our research findings to effect real, lasting change that benefits the health of families and the planet.”
