On April 6th, the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions will host a workshop that will provide an overview of complex systems science and explore systems approaches to obesity solutions.

Featuring examples from within and outside the obesity field, the workshop will provide a background on systems theories and applications, explore existing societal systems that have the potential to shape population health and wellbeing, and examine systems and contributing factors that can influence obesity. For example, the workshop will explore how systems and contributing factors like inequity (i.e. social determinants), power dynamics, relationships, capacity, and political will affect systems that can influence obesity, and how they can impact effective communications and cross-sector collaboration.
