In Paul Jenkin's collaboration with Umeå University, researchers first focused on population intervention and compared prevention programs in Västerbotten and New York. Thereafter, the mortality risk was assessed at high body mass index (BMI) in each country. By comparing the outcome of efforts in the US and Västerbotten, Paul Jenkins and colleagues in Umeå could also highlight the value of weight stability as an alternative to weight-reducing measures. Comparative studies are now under way of how US and Swedish primary care guide and support patients to adopt healthier living habits.
Paul Jenkins will be awarded the title Honorary doctor of medicine at the Annual Celebration Ceremony on 21 October at 17:00 in Aula Nordica.
