Practicum site: UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity. The office is located in Hartford, but the field work took place in Manchester and East Hartford (2019)

Project description: I was responsible for revising a codebook and creating a spreadsheet that was used to collect data in the field on health claims of children’s sugary drinks. Gaining knowledge of the intricacies of planning a large data collection project was the most rewarding and valuable. These are skills that I can use when planning future studies.

Some advice for future students…It is important to know the scale of the project prior to starting so you are able to develop timely goals.
