Nutrition & Obesity Policy Research & Evaluation Network

The Nutrition and Obesity Policy Research and Evaluation Network (NOPREN) is a collaborative applied research network that informs policies and practices designed to improve nutrition, prevent obesity, and advance health equity.

NOPREN members include researchers and practitioners interested in how policies and programs enacted at the federal, state, tribal, and local levels impact families’ food security, access to healthy food and water, and overall nutrition and health.
