Title: Healthy Eating Research: Building Evidence to Prevent Childhood Obesity – Round 10
Agency: The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)
Note: 1/3 of available funds earmarked for studies serving rural areas of the U.S., Asian/Pacific Islanders, and/or American Indians
Description: “The program supports research on environmental and policy strategies with strong potential to promote healthy eating among children to prevent childhood obesity, especially among groups at highest risk for obesity: black, Latino, American Indian, Asian/Pacific Islander, and children who live in lower-income communities (urban, suburban, and/or rural). Findings are expected to advance RWJF’s efforts to help all children achieve a healthy weight, promote health equity, and build a Culture of Health.” (direct quote from RWJF website)
