About Amy Redman
Amy L. Redman, PhD, is a food system(s) professional with a dynamic background in education, applied research, and stakeholder collaboration. Her doctoral degree is in the Sociology of Health and Illness, and she has over seven years of work experience in food systems studies and research. As a qualitative researcher, her work has primarily focused on everyday food practices and health among various populations including Military Families, and Rural, Homeless, and Refugee groups.
For Professor Redman, Public Health is a collaborative, evidence-based practice, which strives for the physical, mental, and social wellbeing for ALL individuals, groups, and populations. Sir Geoffrey Vickers (1894-1982) stated, “The goals of public health consist of successive redefinitions of the unacceptable,” and for Amy, this work includes education around sustainable food systems, food insecurity, systemic racism, diet-related diseases, unequal access to healthcare, and more.

Most recently, Amy has been volunteering for an initiative called Neighbor Helping Neighbor (HNH), a small community-based program that offers financial and food support to those in need in Huntington, Vermont, and the surrounding areas. She has joined a team of helping hands to raise money for this great cause, which for her, feels like one of many ways to actively engage in public health.
