Zullig honored with Horizon Award


Keith Zullig, assistant professor of physical education, health and sport studies, has received the 2005 American Association of Health Education's (AAHE) Horizon Award.

The award, presented during the AAHE National Convention in April, recognizes an individual who demonstrates outstanding potential to obtain prominence in health education.

His research focuses on health risk behaviors of adolescent and college populations, such as selected substance use, violent and aggressive behaviors and sexual risk-taking behaviors. He also investigates perceived life satisfaction and health related quality of life, for holistic assessment of youth in health behavior assessment, program implementation and evaluation efforts.

Zullig has received research support from the U.S. Department of Education for a project to reduce high-risk alcohol use by first-year college students.

He is a member of the State Planning Committee for Health Education in Ohio, the American School Health Association, American Public Health Association, and serves locally as a member of the Oxford Healthy Community Coalition. He joined the Miami faculty in 2002 after earning a doctorate in public health from the University of South Carolina.
