NHLBI Obesity Working Group

In January 2008, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) director formed the NHLBI Obesity Working Group to enhance the Institute’s leadership in obesity by coordinating obesity-related research and translation activities and fostering communication and collaboration across the NHLBI. The Working Group considers all obesity-related areas including basic science, clinical science, translation activities, and education. Its tasks include identifying priority obesity-related research initiatives, collaborations, and national educational and policy activities.
