Has anyone seen a full list of conditions that are linked with obesity/overweight? The CDC site lists 16 but it seems like the literature is more robust than that. Any hits of where to look?
I heard a speaker guess that the number was 200 but that doesn't seem plausible either.
Thanks in advance
The University of Georgia has revised our position for an Associate Dean for Extension and Outreach and re-opened the search. A short position description is below, along with a link to the UGAJobs posting and application procedure under "Application Procedure" near the end.
As I mentioned earlier in the year, we have an Extension organization-wide emphasis now on healthy living, large EFNEP and SNAPEd programs, and many other nutritional programming emphases. I hope someone with a background in nutrition or related field might be interested in stepping up to an administrative role! The position also maintains an important seat on the Georgia Clinical Translational Science Alliance with Emory University, Morehouse School of Medicine and Georgia Tech.
Please consider this opportunity and share this announcement with others you might consider good candidates for us. Applications should be submitted by April 22.
