Summit on promoting healthy eating and active living: Developing a framework for progress

This grant provides support for a two-day summit on promoting healthy eating and active living. The goal of the summit is fourfold: to develop a framework for understanding the interrelated factors affecting dietary and physical activity behaviors; use this framework to identify the most promising avenues to achieve Healthy People 2010 goals; identify knowledge-based actionable recommendations for research, education, intervention, public policy, and private sector innovation; and create dialogue and innovative thinking among the multiple represented disciplines. The summit also hopes to foster partnerships among government; industry; the scientific, professional, and advocacy communities; the media and the public to encourage healthy lifestyle behavior.
