Dr. Hannah K Wilson is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences at Clemson University. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Food Science from Georgia Southern University, followed by her PhD in Foods & Nutrition from the University of Georgia, where she studied implementation and health outcomes of the National Diabetes Prevention Program in Georgia Cooperative Extension. She is a registered dietitian nutritionist, having completed her dietetic internship with an emphasis in Community Nutrition at the University of Georgia. She joined Clemson in 2024 and is based at the Pee Dee Research and Education Center, where she studies development, dissemination, and implementation of chronic disease prevention and management interventions.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on development, dissemination, and implementation of programs and interventions aiming to reduce the public health burden of lifestyle-related chronic diseases that account for many of the leading causes of death in the United States, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and cancer. My research incorporates dissemination and implementation (D&I) science to increase uptake of evidence-based interventions and decrease the research-to-practice gap that arguably affects rural and other underserved populations most.
