4-H Partnership with National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research
The mission of the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) is to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and application of childhood obesity research and to halt—and reverse—the current childhood obesity trend through enhanced coordination and collaboration.
NCCOR accelerates progress to reduce childhood obesity in the US by:
- maximizing outcomes from research
- building the capacity for research and surveillance
- creating and supporting the mechanisms and infrastructure needed for research translation and dissemination
- supporting evaluations
Members of this collaboration include US Department of Agriculture (USDA/4-H), Center for Disease Control, National Institutes of Health, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
