As Program Coordinator for the Berkeley Center for Health Technology, Dr. Farrell is responsible for all of the Center's day-to-day communications, including its website and other publications, as well as financial coordination and event planning. Her formal training includes a PhD in Nutrition Science from UC Davis and a BS in Foods & Nutrition from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Less formal training reflects her strong interests in event management, graphic design, and wordsmithing.
Peg Farrell first came to UC Berkeley to manage the erstwhile Center for Health Research: managing its annual conference, seminar series, and other events; designing and overseeing various websites; and writing/designing its newsletter and other publications. She then served as webmaster and editor on several research projects for Berkeley's Center for Weight & Health, before joining the BCHT staff in April 2011.
