Obesity Forum Purpose:
The Obesity Forum was created as a result of input from the HWA's inaugural Obesity Summit held in November 2008. Feedback from the 300 attendees indicated a real need for an ongoing forum that addressed some of the key issues impacting obesity in our community.
The Obesity Forum is one of the most important projects the Houston Wellness Association has undertaken because if we are going to truly make Houston a healthier place to live and work we are going to have to search for solutions to the various issues contributing to the obesity epidemic in our community.
The Obesity Forumwill meet in March, June and November 2009 with our Obesity Summit being held as part of the Houston Wellness Association 2010 Wellness Symposium on January 15th -16th, 2010. You do not have to be a member to attend. However, we encourage your company to join the HWA to maximize your learning and networking opportunities.
