  • The mission of AACORN is to improve the quality, quantity, and effective translation of research to address weigh related issues in African American communities. A major aim of this network is to enhance the visibility and integration of the perspectives of African American investigators within the larger obesity research arena and especially in relation to research in African American populations.
