6th African American Collaborative Obesity Research Network (AACORN) Workshop
August 13-15, 2014
Charlotte, North Carolina
This year’s workshop will focus on improving our ability to
prevent and control obesity in black children and adults by increasing the
effectiveness of research translation and of communications between academic
researchers and key actors/stakeholders (e.g., black-oriented media, general
media, decision makers, and black community members). Specifically, the goal of
this workshop is to identify communication approaches that have the potential
to improve dissemination and uptake of evidence-based public health messages
and intervention strategies related to healthy eating, active living, and
obesity in black communities. As always, we will be inviting a diverse group of
participants including academic researchers, leaders from community-based
organizations, lay community members, journalists, business owners, faith-based
leaders, health care providers, members from civil rights groups and
professional societies, and representatives from government agencies to
participate in the workshop.
