Biography

Dr. Largo-Wight is a Professor in the Department of Public Health where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses. Her research focuses on environmental health promotion. Her first line of work is focused on controlling stress and promoting behavior change through the built environment, or health by design. Specifically, she studies the impact of nature contact on stress, health, and well-being in the workplace, K-12 schools, clinical settings, and the home. Past studies explored, for example, the impact of outdoor booster work breaks on employee stress, office design and employee stress, school-based outdoor classrooms on child stress and learning, nature in waiting rooms on physiological measure of stress, and nature and flowers in the home. Her second line of work is focused on understanding and promoting sustainability-related health behaviors (e.g., recycling, active commuting, sun protection, gardening, food and consumer choices, etc).

 

Dr. Largo-Wight is also the Interim Director of the UNF Environmental Center, where she works to provide environmental-related opportunities for students and faculty throughout the University. Her current focus is on environmental-related curriculum and programming development, student development and leadership programs, student engagement opportunities, community partnership and outreach, and facilitating and supporting faculty research and scholarship across the University. The Center’s strategic focus is on parks, preserves, and nature contact; rivers, coasts, and springs; and sustainability with environmental, economic, social, and health implications.

 

Dr. Largo-Wight also works closely with the Hicks Honors College and works to promote interdisciplinary, community-engaged teaching and learning at UNF.
