In 2014, NCCOR held a one-day meeting funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to convene leading international and interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners to share lessons learned to guide ongoing efforts to reduce childhood obesity prevalence in the United States and worldwide.
In March and April 2016, NCCOR livestreamed three special panel presentations from the Society of Behavioral Medicine’s (SBM) 37th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions. The panels focused on high-impact childhood obesity strategies from around the world including scalable physical activity interventions in Latin America; sugar-sweetened beverage taxes in Mexico, South America, and the United States; and approaches to eliminating health disparities among U.S. and international populations disproportionately affected by obesity.
