Addressing weight gain in women of childbearing age: Lessons from a 20-year collaboration with a national home visiting organization
Presented by Dr. Debra Haire-Joshu, CDTR Director, Joyce Wood Professor of Public Health and Medicine, Washington University in St. Louis
Young adulthood is a period of high risk for excessive weight gain and development of obesity due to pregnancy and postpartum weight retention. Women often face multiple responsibilities which prevent their participation in lifestyle interventions, increasing health inequities among women of color that contribute to obesity disparities. This presentation will describe lessons learned from a longstanding academic research partnership with a national home visiting organization that offers a model for reaching women and achieving real world lifestyle change.
