Webinar on January 27th:Race & Ethnicity Matter

Race & Ethnicity Matter: Understanding Childhood Obesity through the Lens of Health Equity and Justice

Please register for this meeting.

Meeting Description:

Despite signs that the national childhood obesity rate may be leveling off, many of our most vulnerable youth--including African-American, Latino, American Indian, Asian & Pacific Islander American, rural, and low-income children and teens--remain disproportionally impacted by the epidemic. These health disparities show that where we live matters and that too many families still lack access to affordable, nutritious foods and safe opportunities to be active.

Join us on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. ET to hear from national experts about how inequities in social, economic, and environmental justice impact health and the policy and systems changes that are needed to ensure all kids are able to live long, healthy lives. Use #healthequity to take part in the conversation on social media.

Featured speakers include:
  • Maya RockeymoorePhDDirector, Leadership for Healthy Communities
  • Shavon Arline-BradleyMPHExecutive Vice-President, Strategic Planning & Partnerships, NAACP
  • Kathy Ko ChinMSPresident and CEO, Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum
  • Steven Lopez, MPP/MPHProgram Manager, Health Policy Project, National Council of La Raza
  • Olivia RoanhorseMPHDirector, Native Strong: Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures, Notah Begay III Foundation
