Heading to the nation’s largest childhood obesity conference? We’ll see you there!
The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) will be in Anaheim, California, for the 10th Biennial Childhood Obesity Conference. NCCOR is joining 2,000 professionals from around the country to share and discuss emerging research and best practices for reducing childhood obesity.
On Wednesday, July 17, from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., NCCOR members will host a mini-plenary session: Transforming the Field: 10 Years of the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research. Speakers will provide practical information on how practitioners and researchers can use NCCOR tools and will describe what communities can do to address childhood obesity.
NCCOR will have a booth (#205) in the exhibit hall sharing tools and resources to enhance your childhood obesity research and program evaluation, including the Measures Registry, Catalogue of Surveillance Systems, and Youth Compendium of Physical Activities.
