Pathways to Prevention (P2P) workshops identify research gaps in a selected scientific area, identify methodological and scientific weaknesses in that scientific area, suggest research needs, and move the field forward through an unbiased, evidence-based assessment of a complex public health issue.
P2P workshops are designed for topics that have incomplete or underdeveloped research and that have a need for a synthesis and critical assessment of the published literature.
The co-sponsors of the P2P workshop on Methods for Evaluating Natural Experiments in Obesity brought together colleagues from across the federal government to identify opportunities for future collaboration and develop an action plan to address the recommendations and gap areas identified in the workshop.
Workshop Planning Process
The ODP provides leadership, infrastructure, funding, and coordination to conduct P2P workshops. Each workshop is a collaboration with partners from across the NIH, other federal agencies, experts, and others.
