ChildObesity180 plans to hire up to three Research Assistants (RAs) to help implement a research and evaluation project, led by Principal Investigator Dr. Dan Hatfield, that will objectively assess physical-activity (PA) levels among children participating in four Boston public school PA programs. The study will both advance the research literature around how different types of programs affect children’s PA levels and whether they do so equitably, while simultaneously helping programs that already reach thousands of children to optimize their impact.

RAs will assist with study recruitment, data collection, and data management efforts. They will gain valuable training and field experience in various methods,  including accelerometry, anthropometry, and survey administration.
