Significant reductions in population rates for obesity will depend on identification and large-scale implementation of effective prevention strategies. The 2014 SEC Symposium brought together scholars from each SEC university for the purpose of critically reviewing the body of knowledge that could guide the development and implementation of an effective national effort to markedly reduce the percentage of the American population that becomes overweight or obese. The second annual SEC Symposium was entitled Prevention of Obesity: Overcoming a 21st Century Public Health Challenge.
