Johnson & Johnson Community Health Care and Scholars Program

Appendix A

Johnson & Johnson recognizes that there is a limited evidence base for successful approaches to preventing obesity in adults, and an even more limited set of proven interventions for obesity prevention in children.  Through our grant funding we are helping to build this evidence base – additional information on the current J&J CHC Program grantees working on  childhood  obesity prevention can be found at the following website:

Through this initiative, we hope to expose grantees to these and other effective educational interventions.  The following recent publications provide information on some approaches to childhood obesity prevention and can be found at the following web links:

Johnson & Johnson also recognizes that community organizations have created their own effective obesity prevention programs for children and this initiative hopes that these lessons from the field will be incorporated with the evidence-based interventions cited above.
