Obesity White Paper

The NIFA Obesity White Paper describes the obesity epidemic in the U.S. and describes how NIFA, the federal partner with the nationwide land-grant university system, is establishing a new Partnership Obesity Prevention Initiative. It will support and coordinate obesity-related research, education, and extension programs across the country. This network will focus on cutting edge research to identify critical gaps in addressing the obesity problem, to understand the factors that affect behavior and lead to obesity, and to find ways to intervene to change these factors to prevent obesity.
