Elizabeth "Liz" Budd is an academic expert in chronic disease prevention and population health equity. She is a member of the University of Oregon's Prevention Science Institute and the Health Promotion Initiative. Her approach is done primarily through community-based promotion of physical activity and healthy eating, especially among girls, adolescents, and Latinx community members. Liz also studies institutional (e.g., schools, workplaces) policies and neighborhood built environment characteristics and how they influence health behaviors. Recently, Liz and other Health Promotion Initiative member, Nichole Kelly, have developed and are testing the effectiveness of a brief worksite intervention to prevent body size stigma and discrimination.
