The Joyful Approach to Sustainable Behavior Change, Featuring Michelle Segar

  •  Season 3, Episode 14

In this episode, guest host Ryan Halvorson chats with Michelle Segar, who is an award-winning National Institute of Health-funded researcher at the University of Michigan. She has spent her nearly 30-year career studying how to create sustainable changes in healthy behaviors in ways that can survive the complexity and unpredictability of the real world. Her translational research is widely recognized as relevant and pragmatic: She was named inaugural chair of the United States National Physical Activity Plan’s Communication Committee, an adviser to the Department of Health and Human Services, a speaker for the World Health Organization and director of the University of Michigan’s Sports, Health, and Activity Research and Policy Center.

Michelle’s perspective is uniquely comprehensive–For her entire career, she has combined academic research across scientific areas with real-world health coaching to pioneer methods that create sustainable healthy behavior change, which have been adopted to boost patient health, employee health and well-being, and gym membership retention.
