Sharing Session (60 minutes)
Thursday, Jul 15
4:15 PM - 5:15 PM
Room 14
Conference Track:
Marketing to Improve Public Health Perception

This session will introduce participants to innovative policy and prevention strategies that improve access to healthy food and reduce health inequities. Healthy people require innovative strategies that support healthy environments?neighborhoods, schools, child care centers, and workplaces. These should be structured to allow everyone to easily obtain affordable healthy foods and incorporate physical activity into their daily routines. Panelists will share promising practices from across the country and emphasize the opportunity for public health to convene and partner with other sectors, such as agriculture, economic development, and environmental justice.
