The 10th Biennial Childhood Obesity Conference will bring together 2,000 professionals dedicated to combating pediatric obesity/overweight. The aim of this conference is for health and nutrition experts to share and discuss emerging research, best practices, community-based efforts and effective policy strategies that promote and sustain healthy eating and physical activity practices for children, adolescents and their families.
The conference’s theme is ‘Beyond obesity: tackling the root causes’. This seeks to inspire discussions on the societal, structural and economic factors that lead to health disparities, so that professionals in the field work together towards creating equitable outcomes so that all children can attain their highest level of physical and mental health.
