CWH Receives $10 million Pledge
In January, the Center for Weight and Health announced an extraordinary $10 million commitment from the Dr. Robert C. and Veronica Atkins Foundation. The foundation supports independent, evidence-based research into the role of metabolism and nutrition in obesity, diabetes, cancer, and other major health issues. The center, which is a joint program of CNR and the School of Public Health, will be renamed the Dr. Robert C. and Veronica Atkins Center for Weight and Health in recognition of this pledge. The foundationís unrestricted support will allow the center to continue and build upon its groundbreaking work in childhood obesity research, education, and advocacy.
