Obesity Abatement in the African American Community

The purpose of the Obesity Abatement in the African American Community Initiative is to bring broad and diverse segments of the African American community together to engage in data gathering, education, recreation, and nutrition programs designed to impact this life and community threatening problem.

The National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) is carrying out the Obesity Abatement In the African American Community Initiative. The purpose of the Obesity Abatement in the African American Community Initiative is to bring broad and diverse segments of the African American community together to engage in data gathering, education, recreation, and nutrition programs designed to impact this life and community threatening problem. Collectively, the strategic activities are designed to identify and distribute research-based "promising practices" in abating obesity in the African American community, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). For more information, contact Mike Douglas (Project Officer) directly or email NAFEO.
