USC PRC Affiliate and Professor of Exercise Science, Dr. Steve Blair collaborated with Dr. James Hill of the Anschutz Health and Wellness Center at the University of Colorado Denver to launch the Global Energy Balance Network (GEBN) on December 5: http://gebn.org/

Though separately known for their expertise in energy balance, Blair and Hill recognized the need for an interdisciplinary network of experts within the field. According to GEBN, healthy energy balance means maintaining a body weight and level of physical and metabolic fitness compatible with good health. With current lifestyle behaviors (e.g., physical inactivity) serving as causal factors in chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, researchers are turning to energy balance to provide sustainable solutions.
