Childhood Obesity Strategies and Programs

Recommendations from the Expert Review Panel and RWJF Response

In 2009, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation commissioned an independent panel of experts to take a fresh look at the Foundation’s approach to reversing the childhood obesity epidemic. The review panel was tasked with exploring three key questions:

  • Is the childhood obesity initiative achieving its desired outcomes to date?
  • How could the Foundation modify its investments to have a greater impact?
  • How should RWJF adjust its strategies to further efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic?
