2nd Healthy Weight Research Network Symposium


The 2nd HWRN symposium will provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, policymakers, people with disabilities, family members, and other interested individuals to learn about current research in the field related to promoting healthy weight for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through knowledge translation and dissemination this interdisciplinary symposium provides an opportunity to shine a light on the need for evidence-based health promotion programs, practices, and policies on behalf of this population.

The Symposium will also include a poster session to highlight innovative research activities that align with the HWRN’s research agenda and a networking reception to enable conference participants to meet and learn from one another.
