Lucia Kaiser received her degree in Nutrition from UC Davis in 1989. Her research focuses on developing tools to evaluate nutrition education.
In particular, she evaluates life skills education in transition from welfare to work, and examines the impact of acculturation and food security on the child-parent feeding relationship among Latinos.
Kaiser develops nutrition education materials (fact sheets and curricula) for use through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) and other community programs. She also presents nutrition topics at workshops and conferences throughout the state, and writes a blog called “Maternal and Infant Nutrition Briefs”.
