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.
