6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit
October 14-16, 2012
Charlotte, North Carolina

Registration is now open for the 6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit!

Just say YES!

This year's 6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit is more than a conference.  It's a gathering of leadership from across the south. It's an opportunity to engage our youth and learn from them.  It is the place to find technical assistance for your state through learning collaboratives.  It is a time to connect with others in your field of expertise and develop strategies to work together. 

We are implementing a NEW format, and we request that each state bring a team that is ready to learn, engage and take action!  Recruit your experts in public health, health care, schools, industry, education, academics, insurance, nutrition and government.  We will work within the pillars established at prior Summits and define actions we can take across all 16 southern states that will truly make a difference.   We are also working to identify youth across all 16 states who have been active in their schools and communities and with the guidance of YES!, bring these youth together to share ideas and find new ways to work together.

The 6th Annual Southern Obesity Summit has two over-arching goals:

1.To effectively engage youth in our strategies to prevent obesity 
2.To help stakeholders strategize policy and program initiatives across all 16 states 

Join us as we map out a healthier future for the South!  Engage with our youth, share your successes and overcome your barriers.  Just say YES! to eating healthy, being active, getting involved; and, get energized in Charlotte!
