Childhood Obesity Prevention Graduate Training Program

Dear Colleague,         

We thought you might like to hear about a new graduate training program in Childhood Obesity Prevention at The Pennsylvania State University.  Directed by TOS Pediatric Section member Dr. Leann Birch, this trans-disciplinary PhD program integrates social, behavioral and nutritional approaches to the study of childhood obesity.   The program will enroll its first cohort of students to begin in the Fall 2010 semester.  Click here for more information and to read a full description of the Penn State Childhood Obesity Prevention Graduate Training Program. 


Please feel free to share this announcement with peers and any potentially interested students.
