Promoting Healthy Weight 3.0 (PHW3.0)
Promoting Healthy Weight (PHW) colloquia began in 2009; the first series focused on Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents, and the second series, which began in 2014, focused on assessment, treatment, and prevention of maternal and pediatric obesity using a health equity lens. PHW3.0 focuses on healthy weight using the Socio-Ecological Model. Colloquia are offered biannually every spring and fall and can be viewed live onsite (pre-pandemic and hopefully, again soon) and online; colloquia also are archived for later viewing. The colloquia are hosted by Maternal and Child Health Nutrition Leadership Education and Training Program faculty and trainees. Colloquia are supported, in part, by the Public Health Nutrition Graduate Program, Department of Nutrition at the University of Tennessee and through grant number T70MC09805, from the United States Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
