From the Report Summary: The Institute of Medicine (IOM) formed the Committee on Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention to review the IOM’s past obesity-related recommendations, identify a set of recommendations for future action, and recommend indicators of progress in implementing these actions. The committee held a workshop in March 2011 about how to improve measurement of progress in obesity prevention. The workshop was an opportunity for the committee to discuss opportunities and challenges related to measurement and to hear from experts in relevant fields, including public health, economics, nutrition, media studies and communication, marketing, and public policy. This report summarizes the workshop.
