Title of Collaborative Activity:

Obesity and the Built Environment Program

Description of Collaborative Activity:

To begin understanding the wide variety of issues relating to the built environment and obesity, the NIEHS released RFA-ES-04-003, Obesity and the Built Environment, in August, 2004. Research proposals were to examine two specific areas related to the built environment and obesity: understanding the role of the built environment in causing/exacerbating obesity and related co-morbidities; and developing, implementing, and evaluating prevention/intervention strategies that influence parameters of the built environment in order to reduce the prevalence of overweight, obesity and co-morbidities. Participating NIH institutes included NCI, NICHD, and OBSSR, and two Centers within the CDC.
