On April 9, the Johns Hopkins Global Center on Childhood Obesity (JHGCCO) will host its first annual, one-day, Scientific Symposium, “Innovations in Childhood Obesity Prevention: Systems Thinking and Systems Change.” The Symposium will focus on the way that innovative system science approaches can advance the prevention of childhood obesity worldwide.
Keynote speeches and scientific sessions will highlight researchers who are internationally recognized leaders in the field, as well as exciting progress made by the JHGCCO researchers.
The Symposium is geared toward researchers, research collaborators and trainees, and policy makers and their staff members who are interested in learning about how systems science approaches can advance understanding of ways to combat childhood obesity.
Interested parties can register online. No registration fee will be charged; however, only registered participants will have guaranteed access to the symposium. The conference will take place in Baltimore, Md. at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
