Obesity

Professor Philip Morgan

Obesity is a significant community health problem that requires an urgent and informed response. To successfully combat this epidemic, clinicians and health care systems require feasible, effective and evidence-based treatment options that can be provided to large numbers of people.

Our theme's work is focused on the development and testing of innovative weight loss education programs that 'target' and are 'tailored' to different populations (e.g. men, women, fathers, mothers & children) in different settings (e.g. schools, communities & workplaces).
