This year’s 6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit is more than a conference. It is the place to find technical assistance for your state through learning collaboratives. It is a time to connect with others in your field of expertise and develop strategies to work together.
Summit organizers are implementing a NEW format, and we request that each state bring a team that is ready to learn, engage and take action! Recruit your experts in public health, health care, schools, industry, education, academics, insurance, nutrition and government. We will work within the pillars established at prior Summits and define actions we can take across all 16 southern states that will truly make a difference.
The 6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit has two over-arching goals:
- To effectively engage youth in our strategies to prevent obesity
- To help stakeholders strategize policy and program initiatives across all 16 states
Join us as we map out a healthier future for the South! Engage with our youth, share your successes and overcome your barriers. Just say YES! to eating healthy, being active, getting involved; and, get energized in Charlotte!
Registration and the call for breakout proposals will open in mid-April. For additional information, visit www.southernobesitysummit.org or contact Stephanie Ondrias at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-279-3920.
