Alyssa Lederer is an applied behavioral scientist and health education specialist. Much of her work has focused on enhancing young people’s health through the design and evaluation of theory- and evidence-informed interventions, especially in the areas of sexual health, nutrition, and physical activity. She is especially interested in the intersection between health education and behavior change. Lederer’s recent projects include the evaluation of a tri-state school-based obesity prevention program and a randomized controlled trial examining the impact of graphic images of sexually transmitted infections in sexuality education. Committed to public health research, teaching, and practice, and how they inform one another, Lederer also engages in scholarship of teaching and learning research to determine how to best prepare the next generation of public health professionals. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, Lederer was a health promotion practitioner in the non-profit, university, workplace, and K-12 school settings. Lederer is the immediate past chair of the American College Health Association Health Promotion Section.
