Healthy Weight Forum


Monday, September 10, 2018

Today's forum will have a lightning round of self-introductions followed by a discussion of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Healthy Eating Research (HER) research agenda to address beverage consumption among 0-5 yo children and obesity, the related request for proposals that is to be released on the HER website 9/5/2018 and possible collaborative approaches for ECU to respond to this RFP. The discussion will be facilitated by David Collier (Pediatrics BSOM) and Christine Kowalczyk (Marketing COB).

Dear Health PHWRTC Affiliate members:

Instead of the regularly scheduled healthy weight forum 9/24 this meeting time will be used to plan responses to Florence.

Dear Colleagues:

I am working with Dr. Susan Schmidt to help co-ordinate Brody's response to Chancellor Staton's initiative to mobilize ECU's resources to help NC recover from hurricane Florence.

A meeting to gauge interest in and further plan for (a) interdisciplinary response(s) to health and wellness challenges created by Florence will be held in room 202 Warren Life Sciences Building on the Health Sciences Campus at 12:00 Monday 9/24.

Please forward this message as appropriate (for example to students and others who may not be on announce listserv) and also feel free to email me @ if you are interested but cannot participate in this meeting.
