Vernon Grant holds an interdisciplinary PhD in Exercise Science and Community Health from the University of Montana—Missoula (2014). Vernon was born and raised in Browning, MT and is an enrolled member of the Blackfeet Nation (Amp-ska-pi-pikuni). Being born and raised on the reservation, Vernon knows first-hand the devastating effects that diabetes has on Indian people. Accordingly, his research interest is focused on finding strategies to increase physical activity in American Indian populations to decrease obesity and the subsequent development of diabetes.
