Science Café 360: Honeybuns & Greens: Childhood Obesity and What To Do About It

Date: January 28 - 29, 2015

This Science Café 360° is focused on childhood obesity and will feature a conversation with a local health advocate and geneticist Adrienne Corder who established a youth fitness program. Local youth also will share their experiences of overcoming stigma and setbacks on their journey toward personal change.

Science Café 360° is an ongoing series of events to provide a casual space for researchers to connect with residents in the Washington, DC, metropolitan region, and for the public to provide their perspective on medical research. All Science Cafés are devoted to pressing local community health needs. Previous Science Cafés focused on asthma, mental health, sleep and health, and sickle cell disease

Science Café 360° is an initiative involving four major DC health systems. It is supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute-Children’s National, a partnership between Children’s National Health System and The George Washington University, and the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science. 

The event is free but registration is required. Register here.
