Transforming Obesity Research at Duke 

Understanding, and solving the complexities of obesity requires a multidisciplinary approach. Join fellow researchers fostering Duke collaborations to have the highest impact on future obesity-related research and patient care.

During the symposium, attendees will:

  • Delineate knowledge gaps for obesity-related research and where researchers at Duke are uniquely positioned to make essential contributions across the spectrum of research domains including basic, translational, clinical, population, and community health research.
  • Brainstorm strategies for stimulating and optimizing future multidisciplinary collaborations to differentiate Duke as a Center of Excellence for obesity-related research.
  • Develop a framework and use-case for fostering and embedding obesity-related research into routine practice across the Duke Health System and within the Durham community as an ideal learning health system model.
