Call for Proposals: CDC’s Weight of the Nation 2012 Conference

The theme for the next national conference on obesity prevention and control is Moving Forward, Reversing the Trend.  Conference organizers will illustrate this theme through presentations—concurrent, plenary, poster or video—that emphasize how communities; early care and education facilities; medical care facilities; workplaces; states, territories, and tribes; and schools can change nutrition and physical activity environments to prevent and control obesity.

  • Concurrent sessions will foster discussion among panelists and with the audience on the use of policy, system and environmental approaches (PSE) to promote dietary quality, increase physical activity and prevent obesity. The concurrent session tracks are: agriculture, access, and sustainability; built environment and transportation; early care and education; law and legal authorities; medical care; schools; states and communities; and workplaces.
  • Poster sessions will feature traditional and film technology formats. As only a limited number of proposals will be selected for oral presentation, other highly rated proposals may be invited as posters.
