Systems and Obesity: Advances and Innovations for Equitable Health and Well-Being: A Third Workshop Series – October Workshop

October 29 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Systems and Obesity: Advances and Innovations for Equitable Health and Well-Being: A Third Workshop Series – October Workshop

The Roundtable on Obesity Solutions will convene a 1.5 day public virtual workshop on Thursday, October 28 (10:00 am to 2:45 pm ET) and Friday, October 29 (1:00 pm to 4:00 pm ET). This third workshop in the series will explore how to advance strategies for sustainable systems-wide changes that leverage the three drivers (biased mental models/social norms, structural racism, and health communications) introduced in the first two workshops that can inform actionable priorities for individuals, organizations, and policymakers to reduce both incidence and prevalence of obesity. The October 29 workshop session will focus on patient-provider communications around obesity treatment and solutions.

This workshop was organized by the following planning committee:

  • Angela M. Odoms-Young, Cornell University (co-chair)
  • Nico P. Pronk, HealthPartners Institute (co-chair)
  • Jamy D. Ard, Wake Forest School of Medicine
