SAVE THE DATE: PPMC’s 5th Annual Cultural Diversity Conference - October 24


The Cultural Diversity Committee is proud to announce that this year it will celebrate its 5th annual conference! This year’s theme is “Obesity Challenges and Solutions for Diverse Populations: Eliminating Disparities and Increasing Inclusion.”

Friday, October 24, 2014
Room 106 Penn Heart & Vascular Pavilion
PPMC campus at 39th & Market Streets

The morning session will feature a panel presentation on obesity, which has become one of the most pressing public health concerns facing our community and our nation.

Affordable, easily accessible high-tech tools and the latest behavioral incentives to support weigh loss are just some of solutions to be addressed.

The afternoon session will explore the myth of healthy obesity and the influence of public policy on turning around the obesity epidemic. Participants will leave the conference inspired and armed with the tools to create their own community action plans to prevent and reduce obesity.
