About The Centers
The objectives of the National Coordination Center are to: 1.Coordinate communication among regional centers and conduct regional center reviews. 2.Aggregate and disseminate research findings, and identify common themes and results across the four regions. 3.Synthesize and report national data to stakeholders.
The work of the RNECE will build the evidence-base for nutrition education and obesity prevention strategies and interventions that produce measurable improvements in health, obesity, nutrition, and physical activity-related outcomes; and develop effective education, extension, environmental, systems and policy translational activities that promote health and prevent/reduce obesity in disadvantaged low-income families and children.
Findings from RNECE will be communicated to all EFNEP and SNAP-Ed implementing agencies, the scientific community and the general public.
