The Simulation Team of Genoa University is cooperating with the Harvard Medical School in order to provide M&S (Modeling and Simulation) tools for modeling human behavior and its influence on the evolution of obesity epidemics and its effects on social networks, infrastructures and facilities. In particular the authors propose and agent based simulation approach, due to the fact that It is evident that in health care more than in other sectors the high influence of stochastic factors and very complex correlation make difficult analysis on large scale without using modeling and simulation; so a very interesting aspect is to obtain a better understanding of the phenomena generating/affecting current development of obesity epidemics that is dynamically and quickly evolving in many countries; and therefore, providing challenges today and threats for the future.
