San Diego State Nabs $6M To Study Childhood Obesity
CDC has awarded San Diego State University a four-year childhood obesity research grant worth more than $6 million. Researchers at SDSU's Institute for Behavioral and Community Health will collaborate with the Imperial County Public Health Department and Clinicas de Salud del Pueblo to reduce the childhood obesity rate in Imperial County, which at 39% is the highest in California. The grant is one of four awarded to research teams across the U.S. as part of CDC's Childhood Obesity Demonstration Project.
