Faculty and Staff

Keith Brazendale is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Sciences. His research and teaching interests center on childhood obesity prevention and treatment. More specifically, Dr. Brazendale’s research focuses on children’s obesogenic behaviors such as physical activity, sleep and sedentary behavior in-and-out of school time. In addition, Dr. Brazendale is interested in the etiology of children’s accelerated weight gain during summer months and developed his own published research hypothesis – the ‘Structured Days Hypothesis’ – to try to explain why this may be occurring.
