CDC’s inaugural conference on obesity prevention and control

Weight of the Nation will provide a forum to highlight progress in the prevention and control of obesity through policy and environmental strategies and is framed around four intervention settings: community, medical care, school, and workplace, and will also highlight legal and economic strategies to prevent and control obesity. A key feature of the conference is a move from didactic presentations to an emphasis on interactive discussion between plenary and concurrent session panelists, and the audience. The sessions will focus on strategies implemented in these settings that have lead to policy and environmental changes which may improve population-level health. Date: July 27-29
