Kate E Storey


My research program, entitled School-based Intervention Research through Changes in Lifestyles & Environments (SIRCLE), focuses on school- and community-based strategies to promote wellbeing, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health inequities. My work aims to create a culture of wellness for kids, their families, and their communities in the settings where we live, work, learn, and play. I work to create systems-level change through programs that foster resilience and empowerment. As an applied scientist, partnerships are vital and an essential component of my work. As such, I collaborate with researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in both health and education. I have implemented, evaluated, and scaled healthy living programs in communities with thousands of children and have established partnerships across sectors and levels to facilitate sustainability.
