NCCOR highlighted by Georgetown University’s MCH library
January 9, 2013
Librarians at the Maternal and Child Health Library (MCH Library) at Georgetown University have selected the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) to be part of their new edition of the knowledge path, Overweight and Obesity in Children and Adolescents.
The knowledge path directs readers to a selection of current, high-quality resources about the prevention, identification, management, and treatment of overweight and obesity in children and adolescents in homes, schools, and communities. MCH librarians developed the resource to help health professionals, program administrators, policy makers, and researchers learn more about overweight and obesity in children and adolescents; improve care; develop programs; and locate training resources and information to answer specific questions.
