Boston Enters Second Year of Interdisciplinary 'Spotlight on Obesity'

Boston University School of Public Health has entered the second year of a two-year school-wide initiative to examine the national obesity epidemic from a public health perspective. “Spotlight on Obesity” has enabled students from across the School of Public Health to explore many of the complex legislative, environmental, social, behavioral, and economic issues that influence obesity. This extensive interdisciplinary approach to an emerging public health problem has thus far incorporated academic, research, and community engagement.
