Event Details

NCCOR launched the Measures Registry User Guides in February to help childhood obesity researchers and practitioners choose appropriate measures for their research and evaluation efforts. The User Guides build on NCCOR’s Measures Registry—a free, online repository of scientific articles about measures—and are widely recognized as a key resource for researchers and practitioners to access detailed information on measures in one easy-to-search location. The four User Guides focus on core areas of childhood obesity research: individual diet, food environment, individual physical activity, and physical activity environment.

NCCOR is hosting the second in a series of Connect & Explore webinars on theMeasures Registry User Guides. The User Guides provide an overview of measurement, describe general principles of measurement selection, present case studies that walk users through the process of using the Measures Registry, and direct researchers and practitioners to additional resources.

On April 12, Connect & Explore will cover the Individual Physical Activity and Physical Activity Environment Guides. Guest Speakers will cover the behavior epidemiology framework, socio-ecological framework for active living, and validity and reliability of different measures including GIS-based measures. This special Connect & Explore series gives you the chance to hear from the authors of each of the Measures Registry User Guides, all of whom are experts in their respective fields.


Join us on Wednesday, April 12, at 2 p.m. ET, for the first one-hour event. Guest speakers include:

  • Gregory Welk, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Kinesiology, Iowa State
  • James Morrow, Jr., PhD, FACSM, FNAK, Regents Professor Emeritus, Department of Kinesiology, Health Promotion, and Recreation, University of North Texas
  • Pedro Saint-Maurice, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health
  • Jordan Carlson, PhD, Director, Community Engaged Research, Children’s Mercy Kansas City
  • James Sallis, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Department of Family Medicine and Public Health, University of California, San Diego.
