Centre for Overweight and Obesity

Centre for Overweight and Obesity

The NSW Centre for Overweight and Obesity (COO) was a collaboration between public health research groups to address the growing and serious problem of overweight and obesity, with particular emphasis on children and young people.

COO has been established to significantly enhance the research capability in overweight and obesity within NSW, and to contribute to the development of the overall program of action. COO was formed following the NSW Obesity Summit in 2002, and has been funded by the NSW Health Department for the period from 2004 to 2008.

From November 2008, COO's work has been integrated into the "NSW Physical Activity, Nutrition and Obesity Research Group (PANORG)". A PANORG website is currently under construction. For all inquiries, please email panorg@health.usyd.edu.au.
