Last fall, we began our journey to improve our approach and efforts to help in the fight against obesity. Over the last six months, we have been listening to and learning from each of you. We have publicly shared our financial support of scientific research, health-related programs and healthcare professionals dating back to 2010.
As promised, today, we share our first update to this public disclosure of our financial support of scientific research, health-related programming and health care professionals and will continue to do so every six months. We also will continue to listen and learn from the public health community as we work to be a more helpful and credible partner to our consumers.
We have published updates and amendments to our online, searchable database that clearly outline our support of scientific research, health-related programs and health care professionals from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2015. We will continue to openly report updates to you every six months to ensure that we are sharing the most accurate and current information available. Here are some items of note:
We view this work as foundational to becoming a more helpful and credible partner. We want to – and will – get this right as we work to better serve the communities who have supported us.
