  • Building an Evidence Base for Effective Obesity Policy

    We explore research methodologies for building an evidence base for nutrition and obesity policy that are emerging across disciplines.

    Well-informed nutrition policy decisions that consider scientific evidence should strive to improve health outcomes on a large scale. But it's not always easy to find the right evidence to back up those policies.

Listen in to this podcast to learn more about the important relationship between research and policy.
