Recently from the Director
In March of 2020 we published our first newsletter on the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, we speculated that people with obesity would be adversely affected by COVID-19.
Recognizing that obesity is a complex, chronic disease affecting more than 2 billion people globally, the STOP Obesity Alliance is a founding partner of the 7th annual Obesity Care Week (OCW), which takes place this year from February 28th – March 6th, 2021.
This month's newsletter is written by guest author Faith Newsome. Faith is currently a first year PhD student at the University of Florida in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics working on various projects related to obesity research.
