Description

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) asked the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene an ad hoc committee to examine the methodological approaches to collecting data, conducting analyses, and interpreting obesity prevalence and trends at the national, state, and local levels, with a particular focus on children and young adults.

The committee convened a data-gathering workshop, held in Washington, DC, on July 28, 2015. The workshop was intended to provide the committee with information and perspectives to consider as it addresses the topic areas identified in the statement of task and progresses toward findings, conclusions, and recommendations. This workshop in brief summarizes highlights from the presentations and discussions that took place during the data-gathering workshop.
