Help Choose the Most Influential Childhood Obesity Research

Posted Jul 01 2009 4:48pm

by Andrea Wilson

It's been two years since the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation announced that they would award $500 million in grants to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015, including the Rudd Center’s two Healthy Eating Research grants as well as a grant to examine food marketing practices directed at youth. To accomplish their goal, they have been building the evidence about the problem and what interventions work, as well as turning the evidence into action.

Now, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation wants to know what you think. After conducting a thorough literature search and consulting with childhood obesity experts, they selected 20 recently published articles that they believe have the potential to influence the field in the coming years. They would like you to nominate the five you think are the most influential.

View the nominees and vote.

Voting ends July 10, so vote now, and feel free to pass this link along to your colleagues and encourage them to vote.
