Terry Hartman is Professor of Epidemiology in the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University. Her research is focused on the role of diet and nutrition in the etiology and prevention of chronic diseases—especially cancer—and the development and application of improved dietary assessment methods in chronic disease research. Prior to relocating to Emory in January, 2013, she was Professor of Nutrition and Director of the Diet Assessment Center at The Pennsylvania State University. As a nutrition epidemiologist, she has nearly 20 years of experience exploring associations between nutritional exposures and chronic disease in large data sets and has designed and collaborated on multi-disciplinary clinical trials to work toward understanding the mechanisms for these associations.
