Michigan Grad Featured in ‘Personal Health’ Column in New York Times

University of Michigan School of Public Health alumna Dr. Michelle Segar was prominently featured in this week’s “Personal Health” column by Ms. Jane Brody in the New York Times. Dr. Segar, who is director of the U-M Sport, Health and Activity Research and Policy Center, recently authored a book which is based on her research and shows that those who do not like to exercise or have not been able to sustain it can actually learn to enjoy exercise and maintain an exercise schedule.

Dr. Segar edited a “Guide to Thriving” in Findings magazine in 2013, where readers can also find many of her ideas on exercise and diet.
