Coleen Martin, MS, RD

Since the mid 1980’s my education, training and work has focused on community wellness initiatives that tackle issues of physical inactivity and poor nutrition. I have a Masters Degree from the University of Maryland in nutrition research and exercise physiology.  In addition, I am a licensed, registered dietitian. As Program Manager for the MUSC Lean Team I oversee school and community based wellness initiatives and research aimed at reducing the incidence of childhood obesity in SC. Working with the MUSC Lean Team/Boeing Center for Children's Wellness gives me the opportunity to mentor pediatric medical residents, students, dietetic interns and graduate students seeking training in obesity prevention programs.  I currently serve as Chair of the newly formed, Charleston Tri-County chapter of South Carolina Eat Smart Move More Coalition. The focus of ESMMSC is to reduce the prevalence of obesity among adults and children in our state through policy and system changes that support healthy eating and active living.

Jennifer joined the MUSC Lean Team in 2010, after more than 7 years working in international health program management for the Carter Center, CDC, the University of Washington and CARE.  In these positions, Jennifer provided leadership and support to country offices providing HIV prevention and treatment services and support to adults and children through a combined clinical and community-based approach (various countries in Africa and the Caribbean); HIV/AIDS monitoring and evaluation system building (Brazil); broader maternal and child health-focused programs (Afghanistan, Atlanta); and on numerous safe water and hygiene-related programs (Ghana, Mali, Kenya).  Jennifer obtained her Master of Public Health from Emory University, where she specialized in community health and program management.
