Northern Nevada Obesity Information Network

Involves creating a web-based repository of information related to obesity, hosting an online discussion forum to facilitate interactions among members of the Washoe County Obesity Coalition, and instituting an alerting service using RSS news feed technology to identify and push information to the desktops of coalition stakeholders. In addition, two classroom-based sessions will be held to train coalition members to use resources such as PubMed and MedlinePlus to locate obesity-related materials. Individual remote tutoring via desktop conferencing software will also be provided on an as-needed basis.
