Promoting Healthy Weight 2.0

The Promoting Healthy Weight Colloquium is divided into two series.  The first series was from 2009-2013, and the second series began in 2014 and is planned  through 2018.  One colloquium is held in the spring and fall of each year, and can be viewed live onsite and online; colloquia also are archived for later viewing. The colloquia are hosted by the Public Health Nutrition Program, Department of Nutrition at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and are partially supported through grant number T70MC09805, from the United States Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
