What's the Summit About? 

Join us to explore the many factors of childhood obesity and how, as parents, school personnel and community members, we can address them.  We have assembled experts from around the country who will lead the discussion and help us commit to solutions.  

Click for speakers and learning objectives.   


From healthier daycares to safe and accessible trails and parks; from improved nutrition at home and in schools to the effects of physical activity and school performance; from school gardens to more active families -- every possible solution will be on the table.  View the day's agenda.



We are offering you a registration-free summit.  We hope many parents can join the effort to prevent and decrease childhood obesity.  If you need childcare for the day of the summit please arrange that on your own.  We ask that children not attend the summit for the ease of speakers and other attendees.  Parents, in order to ensure a spot at the summit you must register.  Hope you can make it!
