CLO discusses obesity during Millsaps Forum

Dr. Tonya Moore, chief learning officer, speaks during theĀ Feb. 21 installment of the Millsaps College Friday Forum on the Millsaps campus.

Moore's presentation, "Socioeconomic Patterning of Obesity Among African-American Women in the Jackson Heart Study," highlighted education as a key indicator in health outcomes through a cross-sectional analysis of obese African-American women in the Jackson Heart Study.

Findings from the study will provide insight into the pattern of obesity among that heterogeneous group.
