At Duke, he also is the Bishop-MacDermott Family Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience, Global Health and Medicine and directs the Duke Global Digital Health Science Center. Students praise Dr. Bennett for his psychology and global health classes, and in 2015 he was named to the Bass Fellows Society, which honors professors for their respected research and strong commitment to undergraduate teaching. In addition,  Dr. Bennett developed the interactive obesity treatment approach (iOTA), which is currently being evaluated in several trials, both domestically and abroad. He has published more than 100 papers on the social determinants of obesity and the effectiveness of intervention strategies in high risk populations. Prior to joining Duke in 2009, Dr. Bennett served on the faculties of the Harvard School of Public Health and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He co-founded Crimson Health Solutions, which developed evidence-based behavior change interventions for the disease management sector; Health Dialog acquired Crimson in 2007. Most recently, he co-founded Scale Down, a personalized digital weight loss program powered by the latest science in daily self-weighing. Dr. Bennett earned his bachelor’s at Morehouse College and his Ph.D. in clinical health psychology at Duke University, prior to completing postdoctoral studies in social epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.
