ECONOMICS aND OBESITY

The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) is pursuing work to:

  • Address the economics research gap in childhood obesity
  • Connect with new partners
  • Establish a platform for economics research
  • Develop an agenda to stimulate research on the cost effectiveness and benefit of interventions

These planned efforts align with recommendations made by the NCCOR External Scientific Panel. In 2013, NCCOR formed the Economics and Obesity Workgroup to focus on achieving these goals.
