Based on the recently released report, Reframing Childhood Obesity: Cultural Insights on Nutrition, Weight, and Food Systems

About this event

The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) is partnering with the Vanderbilt University Cultural Context of Health & Wellbeing Initiative, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), to host a Connect & Explore webinar on the recently released report, Reframing Childhood Obesity: Cultural Insights on Nutrition, Weight, and Food Systems. The report focuses on three key areas in which insights and examples from abroad can improve U.S. health policy around childhood obesity by understanding that: food is more than nutrition; health is more than weight; and diet is more than individual choice.

Join us on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, 2:00−3:00 p.m. ET to explore how public health policy can work with, not against, cultural traditions and norms and harness local creativity to change health outcomes. Primary author Ted Fischer will be joined by RWJF staff to discuss the report’s origin, findings and implications for child nutrition and health.

Speakers:

  • Karabi Acharya, ScD, MHS, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • Jamie Bussel, MPH, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
  • Ted Fischer, PhD, Vanderbilt University
