Jennifer A. Garner, PhD, RD

What I do: 
Dr. Jennifer Garner is a registered dietitian and assistant professor of food and nutrition policy at Ohio State University. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of her food security-focused research, she has a dual appointment in the College of Medicine’s School of Health and Rehabilitation Science and the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. [can stop here, if that’s enough] Dr. Garner’s research is focused on understanding the role of food security as a social risk for clinical health disparities and on evaluating cross-sector food security interventions designed to improve healthy food access, enhance community food environments, and advance health equity.
