Despite over two thirds of Americans being overweight or obese, less than one quarter of physicians feel they have received adequate training in counseling patients on diet or physical activity. To help combat this problem, this award recognizes health professional training programs from all disciplines that are ahead of the curve in providing this education to their students.
The Innovation Award is hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, in association with co-founding partners the American College of Sports Medicine and the Bipartisan Policy Center.
Applications are open now through November 27. Visit the award website to learn more.
