When it came to selecting a program of study for health behavior science and promotion, the Department of Behavioral Health and Nutrition’s BS in Health Behavior Science, and MS in Health Promotion, were an easy choice for Mackenzie Perkett. “The opportunities to work with faculty on community health programs and engage directly with community members on how to best identify and solve their health concerns, was one of the best things about my time at UD.” Ms. Perkett graduated from BHAN in 2018 with her MS in Health Promotion and in 2016 with her BS in Health Behavior Science. While at UD, she conducted a needs assessment for the Food Bank of Delaware and then developed and evaluated a health promotion intervention for food pantry clients. She has three peer-reviewed publications, and a national award for outstanding graduate level research from the Society of Behavioral Medicine.  All the while, Ms. Perkett was an avid Ultimate Frisbee player for the UD team, participating in several national tournaments. Ms. Perkett is now a Clinical Research Coordinator for the Department of Population Sciences at the Huntsman Cancer Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
