Catherine Dubreck

MA Candidate, Research Associate

Catherine’s Master's research involves assessing the local food environment through children's menus. She is interested in seeing what food items are offered on children’s menus in fast food outlets and sit down restaurants, and how those choices vary geographically depending on a given neighbourhood's socio-economic status and classification of urban, suburban, or rural. Her current interests have evolved from her undergraduate work studying urban access to grocery stores in her home town of Rochester, NY.
