More Information on the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions

NATIONAL INTEREST IN GREATER CLEVELAND
Recognizing the need to take urgent collective action, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (“the Academies”), launched the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions in 2014. The goal of this Roundtable is to engage leadership from multiple sectors to solve the obesity crisis. The Roundtable currently comprises 44 members representing 12 different sectors and includes four Innovation Collaboratives (IC) with targeted and complementary agendas. Innovation Collaboratives are ad hoc activities associated with Roundtables and Forums, and they generally focus on taking recommended solutions and implementing them on the ground.   Among the Roundtable’s four ICs is the CEO IC, which was established by a subgroup of interested Roundtable members with the goal of galvanizing private sector engagement in simple, scalable, and sustainable community efforts to prevent childhood obesity. The CEO IC, which includes individuals and representatives from varied private organizations and is co-chaired by representatives of Nestlé and NovoNordisk, is committed to catalyzing local business involvement in positive efforts to achieve healthy weight among children in the communities they serve.
