Upcoming roundtable sponsored by the Food and Nutrition Board at the
National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.
If you cannot join in person, you can register for the webcast.
How can investments in the built environment advance obesity
12*, join the Roundtable on Obesity Solutions for a workshop that will
explore the roles built environment policies and practices play in the
prevention and treatment of obesity and will highlight promising, scalable,
multi-sector strategies to create more healthful and equitable
environments. Built environment topics that will be covered include urban
planning and design, transportation systems, parks and recreation, and food
systems. Register to attend either in person or via webcast. Due to seating
capacity, in-person registration for this workshop is limited.
* For unknown reasons, the Call for the special issue on Transprot and Health in Latin America was removed from the J Transp Health website. It will be going back as soon as the relevant person is back from her holiday (!) I will circulate the URL as soon as it reappears.
* Despite that, you CAN submit a manuscript by going to the usual EVISE submission site and selecting the LatAm SI instead of a regular issue.
* And because of the vanished call, we are extending the deadline to 31st January 2019.
