Pathways to Prevention Workshop:
Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity

December 5–6, 2017 in Natcher Conference Center, NIH Campus, Bethesda, Maryland

About the Workshop

Obesity is a major contributor to serious health conditions in children and adults. The prevalence of obesity in the United States and globally has grown rapidly in the last three decades; thus, there is a pressing need to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) convened the Pathways to Prevention (P2P) Workshop: Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity to assess the available scientific evidence to better understand appropriate, high-quality natural experiment research designs in the field of obesity prevention and control.
