The Women & Obesity Forum is designed to provide attendees with a look at the current state of research around Women and Obesity. Gaps in research will be identified and participants will be charged with developing transdisciplinary teams via work group sessions. These teams will come away from the forum with a framework for innovative grant submissions based on, but not limited to, the three overarching conference themes:

  • Women and Children Across the Lifespan
  • Obesity and Diabetes Prevention
  • Community Engagement and Sustainable Interventions

The forum will be broken into two sessions at the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education. The morning will consist of four speakers with an opportunity to vote on topics. A panel of experts will then round out the morning session.

The afternoon session will focus on work groups creating their framework. The invited speakers and panel experts will provide support and guidance throughout.

In the weeks following the forum, organizers will maintain contact with the work group and provide opportunities and resources.
