The NHLBI Obesity Education Initiative (OEI) convened a 2-day meeting to help develop a national public education outreach initiative to help reduce and prevent overweight and obesity in the United States. This Strategy Development Workshop, held on February 17-18, 2004, convened more that 70 public health leaders, nutritionists and dieticians, food industry experts, health communicators, youth marketing experts, park and recreation officials, and others from professional societies and constituency groups. The Workshop proceedings illuminated the complexity of the factors leading to weight gain; the many environmental and societal influences on the eating and physical activity habits of various population groups; and the community-based strategies that might encourage healthier habits.
