COPTR is an NIH-funded consortium (2010-2017) of four studies to evaluate different multi-level, multi-setting three-year community-based interventions for obesity treatment and prevention among low-income children. Across the four studies, three-year interventions targeted preschoolers, school-aged children and adolescents and their families, and were delivered in primary care, schools, community centers, park and recreation organizations, and home settings. Change in child BMI was the primary outcome in all four studies. This symposium presents results from each of the trials for the primary outcome, secondary outcomes and intervention dose/participation. Together, the result from these four large-scale, multi-setting community based interventions can move the field of pediatric obesity prevention and treatment to a new level, and inform further research, programming, translation and policy around childhood obesity prevention and treatment.
