Date: Apr 28, 2015 @ 08:30AM - 04:30PM
Location: Westin Harbor Castle, Toronto, ON
Hosted by the Ontario Public Health Association‘s Nutrition Resource Centre and held in conjunction with the 4th Canadian Obesity Summit, this one-day event explored how health promotion and nutrition professionals can enhance healthy eating and obesity messaging. Participants learned how the culturally diverse beliefs and perceptions about food and weight in Ontario, the influence of the food environment on eating behaviors and obesity risk, and the multi-factorial nature of obesity should inform obesity messaging. Through presentations from leading obesity and nutrition experts and engaging discussions and debate, participants were challenged to critically rethink conventional strategies for communicating about healthy eating and obesity to the public.
