By Jane P. Marshall

Four research projects have been awarded funds from the College of Human Ecology, Dean Virginia Moxley announced this week. Those receiving grants and their projects are:

  • Joyce Baptist and Elaine Johannes, both in family studies and human services, for “Military Children: Resilience in the Face of Parental Military Deployment.”
  • Jared Durtschi, family studies and human services, for “Military Couples as First-Time Parents: Understanding and Predicting Romantic Relationship Quality Trajectories.”
  • Richard Rosenkranz in human nutrition; Sara Rosenkranz in human nutrition; and David Dzewaltowski in kinesiology, for “Evaluation of a home-based, health coaching program to prevent childhood obesity in the community.”
  • Amber Vennum, family studies and human services, for “Evaluating the Impact of School-based Family Therapy on Student and Family Outcomes.”

“These faculty members and their projects represent the breadth and depth of our mission – to improve the human condition. Their topics are especially relevant to society today,” Moxley said.

The competitive grants are awarded annually.
