New Global Obesity in Public Health course taught by GOPC faculty
The GOPC is changing the way the world fights the global obesity epidemic with a new systems approach.
Because the obesity epidemic is the result of a complex system of factors, from individual behaviors to international economic policies, it requires a systems approach—one that transformed manufacturing and eradicated small pox in the last century. The systems approach integrates research, innovation, education, policy and action.
The Center unites experts, stakeholders and projects from around the world, and it is home to researchers with expertise in a wide range of disciplines. Through this global and systems approach, the Center is developing state-of-the-art methods to control the obesity epidemic around the world.
