Jan. 7 Workshop Launches New IOM Roundtable on Obesity Solutions

On January 7, 2014, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) launches its new Roundtable on Obesity Solutions with a workshop entitled, "The Current State of Obesity Solutions in the United States." The workshop will present a status update on the current epidemiology of obesity and explore the prevalence, trends, severity, and disparities across the United States. Workshop presenters will discuss key settings where change is happening, focusing on nutrition, physical activity, the elimination of health disparities, and what should happen next.
The workshop is open to the public and will also be available as a live webcast. Speakers’ presentations and a video recording of the proceedings will be available after the workshop.
