Health of Our State and Beyond Series: Obesity

November 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Leveraging the strengths of Carolina’s schools of public health and medicine, its affiliated research centers and institutes, and its prowess in big data management, the Heterogeneity in Obesity Creativity Hub: Transdisciplinary Approaches for Precision Research and Treatment is a large, collaborative project with 27 faculty from 16 departments, six schools and five centers and institutes. The project focuses on understanding why two people who consume the same diets and exercise equally can have very different susceptibility to weight gain, with the aim of developing treatment approaches that go far beyond the “one-size-fits-all” approach that is so common.
