Event Details

Philadelphia Public Health Grand Rounds: Obesity and Its Prevention in Philadelphia

 

There is little disagreement that obesity is a serious problem in the U.S. However, solutions to prevent obesity are complex and often difficult to put into practice. This Public Health Grand Rounds will bring together experts from the local public health community to discuss how barriers to healthy eating and physical activity can lead to childhood, adolescent, and adult obesity. The discussion will focus on food, physical activity, and built environment policies to help decrease obesity and on the role of health care providers in preventing obesity. 

 

Speakers to be annouced. 

 

 

The Mütter Museum will not be open during this event.

This event is presented by The Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in coordination with Philadelphia Department of Public Health and Thomas Skelton Harrison Foundation.
