Rebecca Drewette-Card

I have a strong interest in improving the health, particularly chronic disease status, of populations across the lifespan. Much of my work has focused on the area of physical activity promotion. I have been fortunate to work in a variety of settings: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state health departments, and within small communities. I have been working as an independent consultant for 10 years and enjoy the variety of projects this allows me to work on. I enjoy teaching in the UNE GPPH, and to learn about the varied interests of my students. In my free time I enjoy walking, reading, traveling, camping, and spending time with my husband and daughters. 
I am currently part of an evaluation team looking at the effectiveness of multiple statewide efforts to improve chronic disease status within a statewide population. I also develop communication materials for a national-level workplace cardiovascular disease prevention effort.
