Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s anti-obesity efforts
If you would like to know what the RWJ Foundation is doing to help prevent childhood obesity, here’s a quick summary of the projects it has funded over the past few years. These have helped get the word out. They also established a baseline for actions to come.
The Foundation is now accepting applications for two kinds of proposals aimed at obesity prevention in low-income communities: Evaluations of immediate changes in policies or environments (e.g., an evaluation of calorie labeling), and studies that can provide a basis for policy analysis (these are loosely defined). Ideas? Send them in!
