  • Dr. Jeremy Steeves is a Cancer Prevention Fellow in the Risk Factor Monitoring and Methods Branch of the Applied Research Program. As part of the fellowship program, he received his MPH with a concentration in Epidemiologic and Biostatistical Methods from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. While at Hopkins, Dr. Steeves worked on a capstone project titled, Relation Between Physical Activity and Low Serum Testosterone Levels in U.S. Men: Results from NHANES 1999-2004. He also worked with the Center to Reduce Cancer Disparities researching the recruitment of older African American adults into the Cancer Prevention & Treatment Demonstration.

    Dr. Steeves completed his PhD in Exercise Physiology at the University of Tennessee. His dissertation involved conducting a 6-month randomized controlled behavioral physical activity intervention for sedentary overweight adults, for which he was awarded the Watson Outstanding Dissertation Award. He also worked on a project investigating a new Integrated Measurement System for improving daily assessments of physical activity. At NCI, he continues to work on improving the measurement tools and resources available to assess physical activity in research settings. He is involved with a project that deals with the promotion of health-related modifiable risk factors (physical activity, diet, and weight) using the Physician Survey of Practices on Diet, Physical Activity, and Weight Control to investigate the association between physician attitudes about energy balance care, and care delivery.
