We are organizing a Special Issue on the relationship of public health and pediatric obesity treatment and prevention in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/ijerph.
Pediatric obesity continues to be amongst the most challenging healthcare issues facing the world. As we recognize that environmental issues are critically important, public and population health-based initiatives are playing a more and more prominent role in fighting the obesity epidemic. With this Special Issue, we hope to explore new and innovative ways the obesity problem is being approached on a community, region, national and worldwide scale.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the impacts of public and population health on pediatric obesity. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
