NCCOR Showcase: Highlighting New Projects, Tools, and Resources

On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) hosted a Connect & Explore webinar called “NCCOR Showcase: Highlighting New Projects, Tools, and Resources.” The webinar will give an overview of NCCOR and highlight project successes from the past few years.

We highlighted the Measures for Children at High Risk for Obesity Decision Tree, the Childhood Obesity Evidence Base Project, and the Economic Impact of Built Environment Improvements Project.
