Study Summary

The goal of this study is to evaluate whether the addition of spices and herbs to the vegetables served to active-duty Service Members living on a large military base can increase vegetable intake as compared to typical vegetable offerings without spices and herbs. The two-phase study design that was successfully implemented by the University of Maryland School of Medicine research team in the most recent Baltimore high school spices and herbs vegetable intervention will be largely replicated, with key adaptations made to reflect the military base setting and specific needs of the active-duty military population that will be determined in a stakeholder engagement process.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
