Real Talk. Real Solutions!
Submitted by Action for Healthy Kids
CHICAGO, October 25, 2022 /CSRwire/ - Action for Healthy Kids will convene over 300 school leaders, educators, parents, caregivers and stakeholders for the 2022 National Conference on Child Health and Well-Being: Real Talk. Real Solutions! at Loews Chicago Hotel from November 2 – 4, 2022.
The three-day national conference is designed to mobilize individuals to use the knowledge they gain to strengthen family-school partnerships in their communities and implement sustainable solutions for healthy eating, physical activity, and social-emotional health that directly impact children. The conference comes on the heels of the Biden-Harris Administration’s White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health with its goal to find policy solutions to end hunger, improve nutrition, increase physical activity, reduce diet-related diseases, and close the equity disparities around them.
“We are excited to bring people together to empower them to identify solutions and take action in their communities,” said Rob Bisceglie, CEO of Action for Healthy Kids. “The conference further demonstrates our transformative commitment to decreasing disparities and improving health outcomes for children.”
Featured conference speakers include:
