The Roundtable on Obesity Solutions of the Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a virtual public workshop, Defining Progress in Obesity Solutions through Structural Changes, on October 25, 2022. The workshop focused on methods to assess progress in addressing structural drivers of obesity. Presentations explored innovative approaches and performance indicators that could be used to gauge progress in obesity solutions as well as strategies to hold leaders and decision makers accountable. Workshop sessions covered topics such as the science, strengths, and limitations of body mass index (BMI), and a review of structural drivers of obesity in a variety of systems - political and economic, environmental, health care, and sociocultural - along with current approaches used to measure progress in those systems. This publication summarizes the presentation and discussion of the workshop.
