Assistant Professor, Health Management and Policy, School of Public Health


Dr. Wolfson is a mixed-methods health policy researcher whose work lies at the intersection of health policy and health behavior. The majority of her research focuses on health and social policies and programs related to food and beverage choices, diet quality, food insecurity, and obesity and diet related disease prevention. In all her work, Dr. Wolfson’s goal is to produce evidence that contributes to social and policy change, supports the creation of a health promoting and sustainable food system, helps develop effective policies, and ultimately, improves the public’s health, particularly for the most vulnerable members of society.
