Event Overview
Welcome message:
The Childhood Obesity Conference is the nation’s largest, most influential collaboration of professionals dedicated to combating pediatric obesity/overweight.

This year’s conference theme is, “Collective Impact: Developing a Shared Vision to Achieve Greater Success”. This theme invites conference participants to discover the various partnerships and cross-sector collaborations that are essential to accelerating systemic change as well as exploring the possibilities of forming uncommon and thought-provoking alliances to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic. In addition, the conference will focus on how you can strengthen existing partnerships in order to maximize results, leverage resources and develop a shared vision to achieve social norm change in your community and the communities you serve.

A Focus on Collective Impact:
The conference will highlight how collective impact principles coupled with evidence and practice based strategies can be used to effectively and efficiently combat the socio-ecological factors that contribute to overweight/obesity in children and adolescents. Strategies and principles that are focused on reaching children and adolescents who suffer disproportionality from high obesity/overweight will be elevated.

Collective Impact is:

- People coming together, in a structured way, to achieve social change.
- People coming together to collectively define a problem and creating a shared vision to solve it.
- Tracking progress jointly, to allow for continuous improvement.
- Coordinating collective efforts to maximize the end result.
- Building trust and relationships among all parties.
- Having a team dedicated to organizing the work of the group.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

The Poster Sessions at the 8th Biennial Childhood Obesity Conference offer your organization an opportunity to quickly and efficiently share your emerging research, best practices, community-based efforts and policy strategies that promote and sustain healthy eating and physical activity practices through a visually appealing poster board. Poster sessions typically combine text and graphics to tell your story to conference attendees and allows for informal one-on-one discussions and information sharing.

Poster Proposal Considerations and Tips:

  • Poster board displays will be provided (approximately 4’x5’) and presenters may illustrate their project by displaying photos, diagrams and/or program poster/banners.
  • If your poster is accepted, you will be expected to staff your poster during your assigned presentation time.
  • You must be a paid registrant at the conference in order to present your poster.
  • Unfortunately, electrical and audio-visual access will not be available for poster presentations.
  • It is recommended to use a scientific format in developing each of your poster components: Background, Objectives, Methods, Results and Conclusion. Be sure to include the title of your presentation and a list of authors.
  • Poster presentations should display information on the interventions and strategies employed by your project in a visually appealing way using both text and graphics, if applicable/appropriate.
  • All text should be large enough to read comfortably and avoid overloading the poster with too much information.
