The nutrition, obesity, exercise and lifestyle division encompasses partnerships across the state to improve the health and wellbeing of Arizona. We will bring ideas together to develop interventions that are multi-sector, multi-institutional and multi-level collaborations. We will pay special attention to health disparities and use innovative strategies to monitor, promote and evaluate behaviors across the lifespan. Our goal is to disseminate the work we conduct and obtain large scale grants to fund our efforts (e.g., R01, Center grants, training grants).
