ROUNDTABLE ON OBESITY SOLUTIONS: Systems and Obesity: Advances and Innovations for Equitable Health and Well-Being.
October 28 @ 9:00 am - October 29 @ 3:00 pm
Join the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions on October 28-29 for the third workshop in the series, Systems and Obesity: Advances and Innovations for Equitable Health and Well-Being. This workshop is the final in the series, Addressing Structural Racism, Bias, and Health Communication as Foundational Drivers of Obesity.
Building on the previous two workshops, this third workshop in the series will look at leveraging multiple systems and sectors to advance effective and actionable strategies to address obesity. With examples that intersect the Roundtable’s three priority areas for action (1. bias and social norms, 2. structural racism, and 3. health communication), presentations on October 28 will examine Big Data methods, social movements, and policy approaches. The workshop will continue on October 29 with a session on patient-provider communication strategies that recognize the cross-cutting drivers that influence obesity and how obesity and its treatment are perceived by providers and patients.
