Description

On January 7, 2014, the newly formed Roundtable on Obesity Solutions of the Institute of Medicine held its first public event, a half-day workshop titled "The Current State of Obesity Solutions in the United States." The purpose of the roundtable, which includes representatives from public health, health care, government, the food industry, education, philanthropy, the nonprofit sector, and academia, is to engage leadership from multiple sectors to discuss potential solutions to the obesity crisis. Through meetings, public workshops, background papers, and innovation collaboratives, the roundtable will foster an ongoing dialogue about critical and emerging implementation, policy, and research topics to accelerate progress in obesity prevention and care. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions of the workshop.
