Summit on Childhood Obesity

The University of Maryland, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, is sponsoring a two-day Summit on Childhood Obesity on November 15 -16 at the Hilton in Baltimore.

The aim of the University of Maryland’s Summit on Childhood Obesity, is to exchange information, educate and engage prominent figures at the local and federal levels in discussions about current policies, various health disparities, and to identify cultural influences on potential interventions. Through these discussions we hope to create an environment that cultivates a better understanding of the effects of childhood obesity regionally as well as nationally.

Registration materials can be found on the University’s website.
