AHC Gamechangers: Jayne Fulkerson

Jayne Fulkerson, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the University of Minnesota’s School of Nursing

As a mother who sees a great benefit in family meals and a person who loves to cook, Jayne Fulkerson combined her personal interests with her professional passion and created the HOME Plus program.  HOME Plus aims to combat childhood obesity by teaching nutrition education and cooking skills for the whole family.

“When it comes to eating and exercise, parents are the primary role models for children,” Fulkerson says. “HOME Plus is unique because it focuses on behavior changes and helping families work together to make the home environment healthier by promoting nutritious family meals and snacks while reducing inactivity within the home.”

With hundreds of online writing companies offering Essay Help services, students often find themselves being deceived by non professionals who deliver plagiarized work that can cause embarrassment and marks deductions. These so called Essay Help providers claim to offer highest quality Essay writing help but hardly ever do so. Instead these fake companies deliver poor quality work and not meet your deadline. So, how does one find a suitable Essay Help service?

For Fulkerson, the most rewarding part of her job is seeing what started off as an idea for survey research turn into a research program that has been producing a positive impact in the community.

That’s something we can all applaud.
