Kristen A. Copeland, MD Director, NRSA Research Fellowship
Director, NRSA Research Fellowship
Kristen A. Copeland, MD, is a general pediatrician and a child health researcher. Her research interests are in early education settings—how the child care environment affects children’s health. In the past she has focused on child care illness policies and the temporary exclusion of children from child care settings due to illness. She studied how exclusion decisions are influenced by personal beliefs and whether they comply with national guidelines. Her research has been published in peer-reviewed literature and covered extensively by the press, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, and Parents Magazine.
More recently, Dr. Copeland has become interested in the opportunities child care settings offer for disease prevention and health promotion, in particular for preventing childhood obesity. Her research, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, will identify the key aspects of the child care center environment—such as physical activity policies, amount and design of playground facilities, menu content, and staff attitudes and behavior that effectively promote children’s physical activity and a balanced dietary intake. The goal of her research is to produce new knowledge than can inform the development of evidence-based policies and practices for child care centers that promote active play, improve children’s diets and foster the development of lifelong healthy habits.
Originally from Raleigh, North Carolina, Dr. Copeland attained her bachelor’s degree in Houston, Texas at Rice University, double majoring in French and the Social Studies of Science, Technology, and Medicine. She earned her M.D. from the University of Alabama in Birmingham. She completed a pediatrics residency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2002 and pursued further training in public health and health services research as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland. She returned to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2004 as a faculty member in the Division of General and Community Pediatrics.

Heidi J. Kalkwarf, PhD, RD
Calcium and bone metabolism; establishing nutrient requirements; calcium metabolism during lactation; bone mineral acquisition in children
Heidi Kalkwarf, PhD, RD, is a nutritional epidemiologist whose research interest is in the development of dietary recommendations to optimize health, particularly bone health.
She has conducted research, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), focusing on dietary calcium requirements of lactating women and the changes in bone density and in calcium metabolism that occur during lactation and after weaning. Dr. Kalkwarf's research has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, and was used by the Institute of Medicine to establish the new dietary calcium intake recommendations for lactating women.
Dr. Kalkwarf also is investigating the normal patterns of bone growth and development in children and adolescents. The goals of this work are to identify the short term and long term consequences of low bone density in childhood, identify children who are at risk for osteoporosis later in life and to identify interventions to reduce this risk.
Dr. Kalkwarf came to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center as a postdoctoral fellow in 1990 and joined the faculty in 1993. She earned her master's and doctoral degrees in Nutritional Sciences at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
