During 2023, the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions remained committed to reducing the prevalence of obesity by working across systems and sectors and maintaining a focus on structural racism, bias and stigma, and health communication. Framing their activities and discussions within these three areas, the roundtable and its five Innovation Collaboratives covered important and timely issues, including exploring the strengths and limitations of body mass index and other measures of body composition and body fat distribution, and strategies for improving communication about body weight. This annual report summarizes the activities of the roundtable in 2023.
