Obesity stands in the ignominious position of being the only epidemic in the latter decades of the twentieth century and into the new millennium that nurses-clinicians, academicians, and investigators alike-seem to have virtually ignored. There are few past or present clinical descriptions, curriculum examples, or research results that have been presented or published by nurses that demonstrate the discipline's recognition of and commitment to this pervasive health problem. This article discusses the various factors contributing to obesity, including genetic and cultural influences, and provides an overview of studies on weight management strategies.
