Bethany Barone Gibbs

Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Physical Activity, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, USA


Dr. Bethany Barone Gibbs is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Physical Activity, and Clinical and Translational Science at the University of Pittsburgh. She trained in cardiovascular epidemiology and studies the prevention and treatment of obesity and cardiometabolic disease through healthy lifestyle behaviors. Her interests include population and intervention studies of physical activity, sedentary behavior, and eating habits as they related to hypertension, subclinical cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity. Most recently, her research has focused on sedentary behavior as a risk factor, independent from moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity. These sedentary behavior studies have evaluated measurement and methods, longitudinal associaitons in cohort studies, and intervention methods to decrease sedentary behavior. Current projects include evaluating whether sit-stand desks can decrease blood pressure and arterial stiffness, a 6-month pilot intervention study using sit-stand desks and activity breaks to decrease chronic low back pain, and developing interventions to decrease sedentary behavior and improve physical function in older adults across the spectrum of long-term care. She was recently funded by the American Heart Association to study sedentary behavior and cardiovascular health during pregnancy.
