Institute of Medicine’s Roundtable on Obesity Solutions, September 30th
The workshop will explore how stakeholders with a traditional role in promoting health, such as health care and public health institutions, have aligned and partnered with sectors not traditionally engaged in health promotion and obesity prevention, including education, transportation, business, and industry. Successful examples of cross-sectoral collaborations exist, yet barriers exist when scaling and replicating such cross-sector initiatives. Speakers will address the importance of health equity, sustainability, leadership, and measurement in cross-sector obesity solutions. Workshop participants will identify best practices, lessons learned, and steps needed to advance obesity solutions through cross-sector work.
Register to attend the workshop at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C. or via live webcast.
