Anna Choi, MPP, Ph.D is an Assistant Professor, Dept of Public Administration, Sejong University. Her training is in health economics, with the focus on risky health behaviors. Her RCMAR CHIME pilot study aims to analyze the relationship between neighborhood characteristics as well as perceptions of neighborhoods on obesity-related health behaviors (i.e. walking for leisure, fast food and soda consumption) among minority elderly in California, focusing on Asian Americans and comparing them to Hispanic and African American elderly adults. The project will use California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data from 2011 to 2017, with geographic identifiers matched to American Community Survey data.
