The Southeastern Conference will be hosting the 2014 SEC Symposium entitled Prevention of Obesity: Overcoming a 21st Century Public Health Challenge from September 21-23, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia.

The annual SEC Symposium is designed to address a significant scholarly issue utilizing the range of disciplinary strengths represented by the Southeastern
Conference’s 14 member universities. This academic conference-type event showcases their academic excellence and expands their opportunities for collaboration.

Although high obesity rates have given rise to a commercial weight loss industry and have produced growth in obesity-related health care costs, experience to date
demonstrates that most people who become obese remain obese in the long term, regardless of the treatment strategies. It seems then that significant reductions in the obesity rate will depend on identification and implementation of effective prevention strategies.

Consequently, the 2014 SEC Symposium will bring together scholars from
each SEC university to critically review the body of knowledge that could guide the development and implementation of a national effort to markedly reduce the
percentage of the American population that becomes overweight or obese.
