Overweight and Obesity Prevention and Interventions in School Aged Children: USDA Supported Projects
Monday, November 4, 2013: 2:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The purpose of this session is to explore the most recent research funded by USDA – NIFA in the AFRI Competitive Grants Program – Childhood Obesity Prevention. Identifying the latest research and interventions from a variety of perspectives is important to gain a better understanding of the link between nutrition, physical activity and childhood obesity prevention. Exploring these programs is also a way to respond to the need for obesity prevention strategies across a variety of contexts, including schools and communities, and is relevant to a wide range of practitioners, researchers and policy makers
