Presenter: Rebecca Lee, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Health and Human Performance, University of Houston | Read biography Synopsis: Physical
inactivity and obesity in children continue to be vexing public health
challenges. In her book, Reversing the Obesogenic Environment (Human
Kinestics, 2011), Dr. Rebecca Lee describes determinants and solutions
for obesity throughout the world. In her talk, Dr. Lee will discuss some
of her own work in the United States and Mexico measuring the
relationships of neighborhood environments and policies to physical
activity, nutrition and obesity in children. Her findings suggest that
simple approaches that promote sustainable behavioral choices in a
complex world should be the priority in improving health in children to
last a lifetime.
