Innovations for Reducing Obesity and Overweight
At Paths to Healthy Weight, the Health Care Innovations Exchange
presents new approaches for helping communities and clinicians prevent
overweight and obesity, in a joint effort of the Agency for Healthcare Research
and Quality and the Health Resources and Services Administration. Our What’s New on Healthy Weight section highlights our latest profiles, tools, podcasts, Web seminars, and perspectives. Our Trailblazers section offers additional healthy weight content, plus links for browsing more innovations and tools.
The Health Resources and Services Administration is funding a Prevention Center for Healthy Weight aimed at overweight and obesity in children and families. The National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality is managing the center and organizing the Healthy Weight Collaborative, which will share community-based and clinical interventions for preventing and treating overweight and obesity. Our Keeping Pace section offers links to these organizations.
