Nutrition and Obesity Policy Research and Evaluation Network (NOPREN)

Network Overview


The Nutrition and Obesity Policy Research and Evaluation Network (NOPREN) is a thematic research network of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Prevention Research Center Program. Its mission is to conduct transdisciplinary nutrition- and obesity-related policy research and evaluation along a policy change continuum (see below). The work of NOPREN members helps foster understanding of the effectiveness of policies related to preventing childhood obesity through improved access to affordable, healthy foods and beverages in a variety of settings including communities, workplaces, healthcare facilities, childcare institutions, and schools.
