The UBC Interprofessional Continuing Education (ICE) is hosting its 5th Conference on Recent Advances in the Prevention and Management of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity titled Time to Focus on Strengths: Addressing Obesity in Indigenous Youth from September 24 – 26, 2014, at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

This conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of professionals and policy makers working in the field of childhood and adolescent obesity. The 5th conference will focus on the burden of obesity among Indigenous Youth and particularly on the strengths of youth. This theme will address a major gap in our understanding of the role that resilience plays in the prevention and management of obesity.

Specifically, the conference will showcase examples of the best and promising practices within Indigenous communities across Canada and the US, and across multiple settings. Through presentations from Indigenous youth living in communities with a high burden of obesity, sharing circles with Indigenous leaders and stakeholders and presentations from experts, the conference will turn the discussion to the strengths of Indigenous youth. Additionally, we will explore interventions designed to promote these strengths and enhance resiliency among children and adolescents.
