About Tiffany Young, PhD
Dr. Young completed her doctorate at the University of South Florida (USF), School of Aging Studies. During her tenure at USF, Dr. Young also earned a cognate in Evaluation from the Department of Educational Measurement & Research. While at USF, her research focused on developing and evaluating community programs for older adults. More specifically, her dissertation research utilized mixed methods and the community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to develop, implement, and evaluate an intergenerational physical activity program for kinship families. She was awarded the USF Graduate Community Scholars Grant for this research. Her current interest is in utilizing CBPR as a framework for engaging community stakeholders in the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs to address broad community health issues. She recently was awarded a Diversity Research Supplement by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute which will support her work that utilizes CBPR to adapt and evaluate an evidence-based lifestyle intervention that will address cardiovascular disease risk factors among older adults in a rural community.
