7th Annual Childhood Obesity Symposium

The seventh annual Childhood Obesity Symposium is hosted by the Cardiometabolic Assessment Research and Education (CARE) Program at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

This year we will focus on the research community in Arizona and bring those involved with childhood obesity to disseminate their work with the goal of promoting discussion, feedback, and collaboration.
