All those with an interest in pediatric obesity are invited to the Pediatric Obesity Section Meeting. The purpose of this section is to support and promote scientific efforts to understand the correlates, causes, and consequences of pediatric obesity and to inform its treatment and prevention. This year’s section meeting will include a presentation from the recipient of the 2015 Bar-Or award and a section update, as well as new events, including lightning talks by early-career poster competition winners and opportunities for networking and mentorship. This year’s section meeting will not be serving Boxed Lunches but attendees can pick up lunch from the Exhibit Hall before making their way to the 90-minute session.
