Meet the Author

Kerri Winters-Stone, PhD is an exercise physiologist who has conducted research in the field of bone health and osteoporosis for more than a decade. She has aided in the development of exercise programs that improve bone health and reduce fall risk in adults, including the elderly, and she has obtained funding, including a grant from NASA, to develop and test exercise programs to reduce fracture risk in a variety of populations.

Winters-Stone earned her PhD in human performance from Oregon State University and her master's degree in exercise science from the University of California at Davis. Her research has been published in various outlets and presented at scientific meetings in both academic and community class settings. She is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research, and the Oregon Gerontological Association.

Winters-Stone resides in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and their two young sons, where she remains active through running, weight training, and hiking.
