Research Agenda

SETTING THE RESEARCH AGENDA FOR OBESITY DISPARITIES IN FLORIDA

A MACOD-R Partnership Committee, led by Co-Chairs Dr. Neil Rowland and Dr. Carolyn M. Tucker, worked collaboratively to identify research questions and   intervention-focused topics based on the obesity disparities symposium series   video recording and/or transcript. The identified research questions and topics were synthesized into 31 research questions. Subsequently, members of the MACOD-R Partnership rated the priority of each of the 31 research questions   (1 = very low priority to 10 = very high priority) via an online survey. Based on the ratings, the top 5 research questions were determined and grouped into 3 major themes: Dissemination of Health Messages, Culturally Sensitive Health Care, and Sustaining Intervention Effects.
