Getting Obsesity Under Control!

Ross Hammond examines the issues around obesity, arguing that the best way to coordinate effective prevention policies is to use a systems approach to model and coordinate the policy side, the scientific side and different methodologies.

Hammond's recent work features extensively in a major new National Academy of Sciences/Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on obesity, as well as a collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and HBO for the event, "Weight of the Nation."
