Strategies To Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance
What we do to STOP obesity:
Analyze and publish data related to coverage and the costs of obesity, including direct medical and employer-borne costs, but also those related to stigma and bias that impact quality of care.
Develop research-based patient and health care provider guides to facilitate respectful, productive conversations around weight. Generate reports and guidance that provide essential obesity-related information for policymakers, legislators, and other decision-makers.
Convene key experts for meetings and roundtables to explore and address specific focus areas and barriers to obesity prevention, care, treatment, and coverage, and execute on identified needs.
