    Collapse overview
    Dr. Banna's research interest is in improving dietary intake of underserved children and adolescents domestically and internationally and developing tools to assess food behaviors and dietary intake, particularly in Spanish-speaking populations. Her doctoral work at the University of California, Davis involved the development of two tools, a food behavior checklist and physical activity questionnaire, to be used in the low-income Spanish-speaking community in the U.S. to evaluate nutrition education interventions. She also worked as a research scientist at the Instituto de Investigación Nutricional in Lima, Peru, where she supervised a research study focused on assessing the dietary habits of adolescents in a periurban community. Dr. Banna is currently the principal investigator on a USDA-funded study focused on assessment of dietary intake and food waste using a mobile device food record in a multiethnic population of adolescents in Hawaii. She is also a member of a multi-state project focused on motivating parents to promote intake of calcium rich foods among early adolescents.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
