Interview – Dr. Kerry Renwick

Dr. Kerry Renwick, Assistant Professor

“Health and food literacy is about the development and exercising of those skills that enable participation in society and control over daily occurrences, especially those that influence health. So classrooms that engage with critical health and food literacy use pedagogical approaches that have self-reflection and reflexivity at their core.”

Research Interests:
Dr. Renwick’s research is focused on the construction of health as a social attribute through family and community; and social justice as a goal of health promotion and education. Dr. Renwick also looks at the ways in which education and health are experienced differently according to family and geographic locality. Her scholarship has contributed to and had had a major impact in the emerging field of health literacy especially as it is applied in school contexts.
