Villanova University College Of Nursing Launches New Center To Combat Obesity

Failure alert!
Obesity rates in the United States have reached epidemic proportions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese and 17 percent of children and teens (ages 2-19) are obese. In response to this health crisis, the College of Nursing at Villanova University has established the MacDonald Center for Obesity Prevention and Education to foster the development of healthy lifestyles and behaviors through the education of health professionals and agencies, community groups and the public.

With funding by the Take Shape for Life and MacDonald Family foundations, the MacDonald Center for Obesity Prevention and Education includes national experts on obesity advising on the latest developments in combating this epidemic. Through the united expertise of nurses, registered dietitians and other health professionals, the Center will mobilize strategic actions to address the obesity epidemic and serve as a model for the promotion of healthy weight management, obesity prevention and intervention through education.

The positioning of this new Center within the University's College of Nursing is significant. Due to the role of nurses in the care and education of the public and their frequent opportunities to interact with diverse populations, they have the potential to make a key contribution in addressing this important world-wide health issue. Among the Center's goals are the creation of evidenced-based programs in obesity education and obesity management, including continuing education for health professionals; partnerships with health agencies and corporations for customized employee programs; programs with Philadelphia-area schools and communities; and partnerships within the Villanova University community aimed at keeping the campus healthy.
The positioning is crappy.

Nurses, dietitians, physicians, Big Sick Care, government and diet experts do more to cause diet failure than any other persons/groups.
