Sugary Drinks Summit
June 7-8, 2012
Want to do something to reverse the soaring rates of adolescent diabetes? Hear the inside scoop on soda marketing from a recovering industry executive? Meet with some of the nation's leading experts and public health activists to help reduce excessive soda consumption in the United States? There's still time. On-line registration for the first-ever National Soda Summit is open until this Friday, June 1, and hotel rooms are going fast.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, in collaboration with other organizations, presents the Sugary Drinks Summit of 2012, a national advocacy conference to motivate and strengthen national, state, and local initiatives, both public and private, to reduce sugary-drink consumption in the United States.
During the event, researchers, government officials, state and local legislators, health professionals, low-income and minority advocates, youth activists, consumer groups, faith-based organizations, health insurers, and business leaders, will strategize to improve health by reversing the dramatic increase in sugary-drink consumption over the past decades.
The meeting will convene a diverse group of experienced activists, as well as those who have only begun to address sugary-drink issues, facilitating an open exchange of expertise and ideas that benefits each level of participant. That interaction will both broaden and strengthen the constituency working to reduce the consumption of sugary drinks and add momentum to a growing public health movement.
