Dr. Mira Mehta serves as Director of the Expanded Food and Nutrition Program in the Department of Nutrition and Food Science at the University of Maryland. The primary focus of her programming is to develop, implement and evaluate intervention programs for food insecure, immigrant, refugee and diverse communities at high risk for Type 2 diabetes and other diet related non-communicable chronic disorders. Her research interests lie in the areas of obesity and Type 2 diabetes in populations which disproportionately bear the double burden of hunger and adiposity; and health disparities resulting from gender and race/ethnicity. She is currently working on a comprehensive project in Gujarat, India to address ‘the double burden of under nutrition (stunting) and overweight /obesity’ using a policy, systems and environment approach.
