8th Conference on Recent Advances in the Prevention and Treatment of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity will be held virtually on September 26-28, 2020.

“This conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of professionals working in the field of prevention and management of childhood and adolescent obesity. The 8th Conference will focus on connecting research, policy and practice to enhance effective interventions targeting multiple populations and settings. This conference aims to better serve our population by bridging the gaps created by working in discipline-specific bubbles or silos. This conference will explore how we can better connect our work in various settings including: community, clinic, recreation, families, schools, health care systems, government and with vulnerable populations across socioeconomic classes, ethnicity, culture, rural and remote communities.”
