About the Workshop
Obesity is a major contributor to serious health conditions in children and adults. The prevalence of obesity in the United States and globally has grown rapidly in the last three decades, and there is a pressing need to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is hosting the Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity to better understand appropriate, high-quality natural experiment research designs in obesity prevention and control. The workshop will take place on December 5–6, 2017 on the NIH Main Campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

The workshop will be free and open to the public, and attendees can join either in person or via NIH VideoCast. In-person attendance is strongly encouraged.

Workshop Poster Session
This workshop will include a poster session for early-stage investigators to exhibit their research in novel methods in evaluating natural experiments in obesity prevention and control. If you’re interested in submitting an abstract, be sure to check the box under “Poster Session” on the registration form. Additional details about the poster session, including criteria and application instructions, will be announced soon.
