Annie Hardison-Moody, assistant professor in NC State’s Department of Agricultural and Human Sciences, directs the Faithful Families Thriving Communities program. Along with psychology faculty members Sarah Bowen and Sinikka Elliott, she served as co-PI for Voices into Action: The Families, Food, and Health Project, a USDA-funded study of the family food environment. She also served as co-PI, with Lindsey Haynes-Maslow, for Health Matters, a two-year community-based health promotion grant funded by the CDC.

This talk will explore the emerging field of religion and public health, drawing on recent work in the field that names religion as a social determinant of health. Hardison-Moody will present on her research at these intersections, including projects that have engaged religious communities around issues like conflict-related violence, food insecurity and health promotion. She will share lessons learned in engaging religious communities in research and health promotion practice, including challenges, conflicts and resources to promote strong and sustainable partnerships.
