Description: The workshop will examine obesity prevention through the lens of working to achieve health equity, focusing on health equity issues and solutions related to the key obesity prevention recommendations and strategies outlined in the 2012 Institute of Medicine (IOM) report Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention: Solving the Weight of the Nation. The report’s recommendations encompass physical activity; healthy food access; marketing and messaging about food and physical activity; the roles of employers, health care professionals, and schools; and the importance of approaching implementation of these recommend-dations from a systems perspective. Through presentations and focused discussions, workshop speakers and attendees will explore the health equity issues inherent in each of these critical aspects of obesity prevention, while discussing potential future research, policy, and action in each area that could lead to equity in opportunities to achieve a healthy weight.
