2014 SEC Symposium On Obesity (8:00 am)

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.

UBC Childhood And Adolescent Obesity Conference (8:00 am)

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.
