What makes ChildObesity180 truly distinctive is its people and their outstanding expertise, dedication, and diversity of experience. Our organization is led by two highly respected and prominent scientists, Dr. Christina Economos, Dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition, and Dr. Erin Hennessy, Director of ChildObesity180. Collectively, their work over the last 25 years has catalyzed a paradigm shift in the field of community-based obesity prevention. Together, Drs. Economos and Hennessy oversee a dedicated, passionate team of scientists, post-doctoral scholars, doctoral trainees, and program staff who are committed to addressing the childhood obesity crisis.
