Webinar Presentations: Race and Ethnicity Matter – Understanding Childhood Obesity through the Lens of Health Equity and Justice

LHC_Flyer_Updated

Despite signs that the national childhood obesity rate may be leveling off, many of our most vulnerable youth including African-American, Latino, American Indian, Asian & Pacific Islander American, rural, and low-income children and teens remain disproportionally impacted by the epidemic. These health disparities show that where we live matters and that too many families still lack access to affordable, nutritious foods and safe opportunities to be active.

This webinar looks at how inequities in social, economic, and environmental justice impact health and the policy and systems changes that are needed to ensure all kids are able to live long, healthy lives.

Featured speakers include:

  • Maya Rockeymoore, PhD, Director, Leadership for Healthy Communities
  • Shavon Arline-Bradley, MPH, Executive Vice President, Strategic Planning & Partnerships, NAACP
  • Kathy Ko Chin, MS, President and CEO, Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum
  • Olivia Roanhorse, MPH, Director, Native Strong: Healthy Kids, Healthy Futures, Notah Begay III Foundation
  • Steven Lopez, MPP, MPH, Program Manager, Health Policy Project, National Council of La Raza
