Highlights from our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration
Be the Change: Catalyzing Communities to Reverse the Trend of Childhood Obesity
We were thrilled to bring Dr. Christina Economos, PhD to Concord. Her keynote was informative and inspiring, leaving attendees with energy and ideas for moving community strategies forward. Key take-aways:
'Whole of Community' approach needed to make change
Systems, policy and environmental changes needed to shift the conditions that hold the problem in place
Key targets: reduce sugar-sweetened beverages, reduce ultra-processed foods, improve standards for school food, implement menu improvements and portion control for foods eaten away from home
