Kylie Blodgett earned her B.S. in Biology from Norwich University (2010), her M.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Michigan (2011), her M.S. in Nutritional Sciences from the University of New Hampshire (2015), and her Ph.D. in Health Education and Promotion from Walden University (2020).
She has a mix of quantitative and qualitative research experiences focusing on exercise endocrinology, nutritional biochemistry, and health behavior. Her current research focus is on the interactions between social environment and eating behaviors on college campuses. She is passionate about understanding the integration of psychology and physiology in the manifestations of health and behavior. Blodgett intertwines this interest into her classes, and has worked with students in upper-level classes at Norwich to develop and implement theory-based programs to support safe exercise in students who are at high risk for injury in the corps of cadets. As her students will tell you, she is incredibly excited about how the body works, but also makes a point to discuss the importance of health and social psychology in college populations and how that may affect human physiology and overall health and wellness.
