AACORN | African American Collaborative Obesity Network

Welcome to AACORN

AACORN is a collaboration of U.S. researchers, scholars-in-training, and community-based research partners.

We are dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of research to address weight related health issues in African American communities.

Our interests include research about healthful eating and physical activity, prevention of weight gain, and weight loss and maintenance.

We address these issues in the contexts of social and family interactions and other aspects of day-to-day life in African American communities.

This website is a portal for information related to research and programs relevant to AACORN's interest areas. The site also serves as a communications hub for AACORN members and other colleagues who have similar interests.
