Dr. Laurette Dubé, Desautels Faculty of Management professor in consumer and lifestyle psychology and marketing and food and health specialist, is a passionate proponent of the view that we need to mobilize individuals, organizations and society on a grand scale to unleash enough action to affect the tipping point of a healthy lifestyle epidemic.
To that end, the McGill Integrative Health Challenge Think Tank: Forging a Societal Action plan in Preventing Childhood Obesity Around the World, will be held in Montreal October 26-27, 2006 at the Mount Royal Center, 2200 Mansfield. The second annual Think Tank will convene leading academics, professionals, and decision- and policy-makers from health to agriculture to food to urban planning to develop a bolder approach to the prevention of childhood obesity around the world.
The keynote speaker will be economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. The Think Tank will conclude with a call to action to all parties in the war against childhood obesity. The proceedings will be webcast on the McGill network.
