Core Obesity Solutions Projects

With the generous support of the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust, we are advancing a set of innovative out-of-the box projects that provide new models for how we can effectively, economically, and meaningfully address obesity. By combining the domain expertise of the many outstanding scientists at ASU and Mayo while embracing new technologies, new forms of public-partnerships, and the spirit of entrepreneurship and transdisciplinarity, we are developing completely new approaches solve this incredibly complex challenge. While our focus begins at home with devising solutions that work for ASU students and a range of communities in Maricopa county and Arizona, the vision is ultimately globally transformative in scope.
