Exploring the role of environment & community in overweight children

Cornell University : 02 March, 2007  (Technical Article)
The proportion of overweight children in the United States has almost doubled since the mid 1980
The proportion of overweight children in the United States has almost doubled since the mid 1980’s, largely owing to the impact of social influences on children’s diet and physical activity patterns.

Overweight Issues in Childhood, the Role of Environment & Community. The cost to attend is $10. Preregistration is required. The videoconference features nationally recognized experts discussing the impact of social influences on children’s diet and physical activity patterns that lead to overweight problems in children. Speakers will focus on successful efforts in combating childhood obesity that demand a coordinated effort by parents, school systems, communities and government representatives.

The five-hour program will be carried live with time scheduled for questions from the satellite viewing audience. Nutritionists, registered dieticians, nurses, dietetic technicians, physicians, exercise physiologists, physicians’ assistants, family and consumer scientists, health educators and other health care providers will find the conference of particular interest. The $10 registration fee includes an information packet; all program related fees, refreshments and a certificate of attendance.
