Thank you to everyone who joined us for our second biennial Childhood Obesity in the Community: Turning Science into Care Conference, addressing how the latest childhood obesity research is being translated into successful community interventions. Community leaders, healthcare providers, and researchers alike were able to explore new approaches to childhood obesity. It was a huge success, and we are grateful to every person for attending and adding to the rich and lively discussion.

Practical How-To Knowledge

The conference provided unique insights to:

  • Why is weight loss so difficult?
  • Do small changes make a big difference?
  • Do genes cause obesity?
  • Why don't calorie-restricted diets work?
  • Why can't successful behavior change be forced?
  • Why won't physical activity alone cure obesity?

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
