The biennial Childhood Obesity Conference is the nation’s largest, most influential collaboration of professionals dedicated to combating pediatric obesity, and is planned by CCE. Nearly 2,000 attendees from across the country traveled to San Diego for the 2015 event, where Chelsea Clinton was one of three keynote speakers.

CCE has been the organizing partner for this event since 2001. Participants share emerging research, best practices and effective policy strategies to promote and sustain healthy eating and physical activity practices for children, adolescents and their families. This event provides an opportunity for stakeholders to develop a shared vision of social norm change, which directly impacts our state. California has made significant progress in recent years as one of the select few states reporting decreased rates in childhood obesity.

Childhood Obesity Conference Hosts:

  • California Department of Public Health
  • California Department of Education
  • Nutrition Policy Institute
  • The California Endowment
  • Kaiser Permanente
