Nefertiti Durant, MD, MPH, CCTS Pilot Recipient: Many of us have a hard time self-motivating to exercise on a regular basis. Add to that the temptation to not stick with a healthy diet and you’ve got a recipe for potential health problems, including obesity, high cholesterol, and hypertension, to name a few. Dr. Nefertiti Durant has dedicated much of her work at UAB to developing new ways to target specific audiences—namely adolescents and young adults, and African American women—to draw them into a diet and exercise program they can stick with, and which they actually enjoy.
