Assessing Prevalence and Trends in Obesity

December 5, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Understanding prevalence and trend estimates for childhood obesity is essential to informing research, policies and interventions. However, different survey or measurement approaches can produce different prevalence rates and trends, painting a varying picture of the state of childhood obesity in America. On December 5, NCCOR is hosting the next Connect & Explore webinar on Assessing Prevalence and Trends in Obesity: Navigating the Evidence. A consensus committee convened by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recently explored how reports on obesity prevalence and trends differ and what these differences mean for interpretation and application. This webinar, presenting insights from the resulting National Academies report, will provide an overview of the various data collection and analysis approaches that have been used in developing reports on the prevalence and trends in obesity across population groups, but particularly as they relate to children and adolescents. Connect & Explore gives you the chance to hear from leading experts from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Committee on Evaluating Approaches to Assessing Prevalence and Trends in Obesity.
