Amy Luke
Contact
  • Amy Luke, Ph.D., received her doctorate in Human Nutrition and Nutritional Biology from the University of Chicago in 1994. She started at Loyola as a research associate immediately after graduation in the Department of Public Health Sciences. Her graduate training was in the objective measurement of energy expenditure/metabolism and body composition using stable isotopes. She applied that expertise to the ongoing multi-country epidemiologic and genetic studies of hypertension and has spent a significant amount of time conducting field research in West Africa (Nigeria and Ghana), the Caribbean (Jamaica) and here in Maywood. Her research is epidemiologic in nature and is focused on understanding the determinants of excess weight gain and growth in human populations.


    Education
    • University of Chicago, Ph.D.               
    • University of Maine, Bachelors           

    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    My academic field is public health but my area of research is much more narrow, of course. My training is in human nutrition, broadly, energy metabolism, specifically. I was originally a biochemistry undergraduate but realized nutrition is a much more applied,tangible area of research.

    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    Teaching at Parkinson is a positive experience, overall. We have good programs, great students, exciting community engagement.

    What does your department's focus mean to you?

    Public health has a very broad interpretation for me - all research, scholarship, practice, and education that impacts the health of populations at any level.

    Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

    Public health's importance, in the time of COVID, is obvious and cannot be overstated. The recent historical trend of defunding public health has been shown to be a huge mistake in 2020. Health entrepreneurism refers to the ability to utilize and incorporate a broad range of skills from a broad range of fields.
