Professor Jones received a two-year Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grant for the project, "Residential Instability and Adolescent Obesity: The Role of the Built Environment."
Professor Jones is selected as a 2011-2012 Policy Research Scholar at the George Washington Institute of Public Policy for the project, "Childhood Residential Stability and Health: The Role of Neighborhood Resources."
With Diana Grigsby-Toussaint (University of Illinois), Professor Jones received a publication grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to conduct a GIS spatial analysis of the areas around all childcare facilities in central Illinois to determine how the social and built environment elevates child obesity risk.
Antwan Jones received his Ph.D. in sociology (2010) from Bowling Green State University, where he researched the role that socioeconomic status has in determining childhood overweight and childhood functional limitation over time.
Trained as a social demographer, Professor Jones specializes in issues relating to race/ethnicity, social class and health. As an urban sociologist, he is particularly concerned about how socio-environmental processes (e.g., segregation and neighborhood change) affect health and well-being during various stages of the life course.
