The Delta Obesity Prevention Research Unit, in partnership with other ARS research laboratories and research cooperators, has developed a strategic plan to improve the health of at-risk, rural populations of the LMD through obesity prevention research. Utilizing multi-faceted research approaches, this endeavor will provide a greater understanding of this population's adherence to national dietary guidance for prevention of obesity and reduced risk for obesity-related chronic disease through the use of dietary and physical activity interventions using established scientific study designs and methods meeting the requirements for evidence-based reviews.
