“Total Activity Counts: A New Measure in Physical Activity Epidemiology”

Dana Wolff is a Doctoral Candidate in Physical Activity Epidemiology with a concentration in Statistics at the University of Tennessee. She is interested in how the increased accuracy of physical activity measures influences the dose response relationships with chronic disease states at the population level. Her dissertation, culminating this spring, will utilize structural equation modeling to isolate contribution of accelerometer-derived total activity counts in the risk reduction of the metabolic syndrome. Dana is interested in expanding her work to focus on the association of total activity counts with risk factors and outcomes related to cancer.
