In this GW/ICF Research and Evaluation Forum video, health expert Dr. Charlotte Pratt discusses how the nature of worksites makes it an ideal opportunity for obesity control and prevention interventions. She also presents an overview of worksite obesity research and addresses key questions, including:
- Do interventions that modify worksite food and physical activity environments (or combined with individual approaches) control body weight in adults?
- Will participation in a worksite obesity intervention sustain and maintain weight loss and reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors in adults?
