The PC will plan, implement, and manage a nation-wide Healthy Weight Collaborative (HWC) as well as recruit and
support communities and teams participating in the HWC.
The PC will also serve as a gateway to quality information on the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity in the context of integration of public and community health and primary care.
