Dr. Kizer's mixed-methods research focuses on the use of communty health assessments and community health improvement plans in the development and implementation of environmental and policy-level initiatives.  Additionally she facilitated a community-based participatory research initiatve in a rural community to assess and improve the nutrition environment.  Specifically she examined whether a geographically dispersed backyard garden program impacted the rural food environment by increasing the availability of fresh foods.  Presently she is involved in initiatives and research related to addressing the social determinants of health for disenfranchised populations through community partners.
