Terry Hartman, PhD, MPH, RD, is a Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University. Prior to relocating to Emory in 2013, Dr. Hartman was Professor of Nutrition and Director of the Diet Assessment Center at The Pennsylvania State University.  Dr. Hartman is a member of the Program in Nutrition and Health Sciences, the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program at Winship, the Emory Prevention Research Center, and the HERCULES Exposome Research Center.


Dr. Hartman's research is focused on the role of diet and nutrition in the etiology and prevention of chronic diseases—especially cancer—and the development and application of improved dietary assessment methods in chronic disease research. She has a long-standing interest in the role of early life exposures on risk for chronic disease later in life. As a nutrition epidemiologist, she has over 20 years of experience exploring associations between nutritional exposures and health-related outcomes in large data sets and has designed and collaborated on multi-disciplinary clinical trials to work toward understanding the mechanisms for these associations.


Dr. Hartman earned her PhD from the University of Minnesota with a focus in nutritional epidemiology. She was then selected as a Cancer Prevention Fellow by the National Cancer Institute and completed her MPH at Harvard School of Public Health.
