"I'll be running the 2016 Boston Marathon as part of the Tufts Marathon Team. I am running to support research programs at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition and Policy, a renowned institution for trusted science and real-world impact. Research topics include childhood obesity, new entry sustainable farming, and partnerships with Boston's minority communities to improve heart health and nutrition.
