Obesity: A Global Challenge

Obesity is a serious, global health concern. It not only increases the risk of premature death and serious health problems, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke, but also has been linked to harmful discrimination, stigmatization, and bullying. At TIGOR, we aspire to be a leading collaborative for global obesity research, publish research in the highest impact journals, attract new faculty, train students and fellows, and integrate civic and real-world engagement.
