New Research Briefs Examine Obesity Epidemic Among Latino Youths

Salud America!, an RWJF national program, has released a comprehensive collection of research briefs examining the obesity epidemic among Latino children and teens.

Three of the new briefs review current evidence with respect to Latino youth in three major areas: the availability of healthy, affordable foods; opportunities for physical activity; and the impact of food marketing on diets and obesity rates. These briefs also provide several policy recommendations.
