      Collapse Overview
      For more than 25 years, Dr. Marcus has directed research aimed at promoting exercise adherence and understanding the acquisition and maintenance of exercise behavior, and has published more than 200 articles on this topic. Dr. Marcus developed and validated assessments for understanding the stages and processes of exercise behavior change, and has also developed interventions to promote moderate-intensity physical activity in community, workplace, and primary care settings. She has participated in the American Heart Association, American College of Sports Medicine, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and National Institutes of Health panels which have created the recommendations on the quantity and intensity of physical activity necessary for health benefits.
