Promoting Optimal Weights through Ecological Research (POWER) is a research program led by Dr. Kim Raine at the Centre for Health Promotion Studies, School of Public Health, at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

POWER explores the social and environmental determinants of the emerging obesity epidemic and investigates the ways in which social conditions and people's behaviours (particularly food and eating behaviours) interact to transmit obesity and chronic diseases through social means.
