Journal Supplement on Community-Level Childhood Obesity Prevention and Treatment

Deadline: December 1, 2008

The journal Obesity will publish a theme supplement in 2009 on childhood obesity prevention and treatment at the community level.  They are calling for abstracts of original interventions and programs at the community level that will add to the scientific knowledge about preventing and treating childhood obesity. They are particularly interested in novel approaches that show strong promise of effect and sustainability. Interventions or programs that result in systematic change in communities to prevent or treat childhood obesity are highly desirable. The top 15 abstracts will be invited to submit a full-length paper. For more information, visit:
