Five years ago, the four largest funders of childhood obesity research joined forces to create the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR): The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
These leading national organizations have...
- worked in tandem to manage projects and reach common goals
- combined funding to make the most of available resources
- shared insights and expertise to strengthen research
Today, NCCOR is a recognized leader— innovative, strategic, and effective. By working together, NCCOR members are giving our children a better chance at a bright and healthy future.
