Brief Bio

Anne Brady, Ph.D., is an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in the Department of Kinesiology. She received her B.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Furman University (2004), M.S. in Health and Exercise Science from Wake Forest University (2006) and Ph.D. in Kinesiology specializing in exercise physiology and gerontology from the University of Georgia (2012). Dr. Brady’s research focuses on body composition and physical function, particularly in the older adult population. Specifically, she is interested in the impact of exercise and physical activity on muscle quality and subsequently, the ability of older adults' to complete activities of daily living. Dr. Brady serves as the internship coordinator for the Fitness Leadership concentration and director of the HOPE (Helping Others Participate in Exercise) program.
