As Director of the U-M Childhood Disparities Research Laboratory, Dr. Hasson has rigorously examined the effects of built and social environments on pediatric physical activity and child health disparities. She has actively provided mentorship and training to Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in health disparities research at U-M and nationally, many of whom have secured tenure-track faculty positions. As Chair of the American College of Sports Medicine Strategic Health Initiative for Health Equity, she has also contributed to physical activity and health policy decisions. Her expertise in pediatric physical activity, implementation science, and health equity research have uniquely prepared her to examine the causes and consequences of childhood obesity disparities and develop behavioral interventions to mitigate these disparities.
