1. Trimbach, Kara Elizabeth. Examining Perceptions of Obesity-Related Training Opportunities and Needs for Head Start Health and Nutrition Managers.

Degree: Masters of Science in Kinesiology and Health, Kinesiology and Health, 2020, Miami University

Head Start health and nutrition managers have identified obesity as the top health concern for their preschoolers. Little information exists related to perceived training needs and professional development training opportunities available for HS managers around obesity and related measurements. The purpose of this study is to examine perceptions of obesity-specific professional development training needs and opportunities reported by Ohio Head Start Health and Nutrition program managers. Phenomenology was utilized for this research study. Semi-structured in-depth telephone interviews (n=13) were conducted. Interviews were audio-recorded and transcribed. Open coding of transcripts was conducted by trained qualitative researchers. Significant statements were coded, defined, and organized into themes. Researchers identified five themes. Themes included attending professional health conferences; online food and nutrition-focused training through state and national resources; health-related training through Head Start; and networking as informal education from internal staff. Participants identified a lack of knowledge and training specific to the understanding of BMI, BMI-for-age growth charts, and skills around BMI measurement. There are a number of general health-related trainings from a variety of sources but there is a need for training to improve knowledge and skills specific to BMI and its measurement in preschoolers and the interpretation of BMI for-age growth charts. Advisors/Committee Members: Miller, Beth (Advisor), Branscum, Paul (Committee Chair), Geller, Karly (Committee Chair).
