This grant supports an effort by Freakonomics co-author Steven Levitt to engage a set of leading thinkers from diverse fields in a small-group "Greatest Minds" meeting to identify unconventional new solutions to the childhood obesity epidemic. By convening a group of 10 to 12 experts from fields outside of childhood obesity, the project will seek to generate new and unexpected thinking about innovation solutions that funders and decision-makers working on the issue may not be considering currently.
