The Eat Smart, Move More NC University Collaborative

The Eat Smart, Move More NC University Collaborative, a partnership of universities from across the state, provides an opportunity for researchers to communicate, coordinate and avoid competition when applying for research funding. The Collaborative consists of six major universities and four schools of medicine: Duke University, East Carolina University, North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of North Carolina at Asheville and Wake Forest University, as well as the North Carolina Division of Public Health.

The mission of the University Collaborative is to facilitate strong working relationships among university-based researchers as well as governmental and community partners that result in the creation and dissemination of new knowledge for optimal strategies for the prevention, evaluation and treatment of childhood obesity in NC. Their vision is to lead the nation in state-based inter-institutional medical and public health collaboration regarding the childhood obesity epidemic.
