      As part of this year’s Canadian Obesity Summit, EPODE Canada presents its first Canadian Regional Forum. This workshop is designed for program managers, local community coordinators or program advisors of childhood obesity prevention programs, and to share knowledge and practical advice between EPODE and Canadian programs. Senior members of the EPODE global team including program managers from programs in Belgium and the Netherlands will share their practical experience on program design, social marketing actions, private public partnerships and program evaluation. Canadian program managers will report on their experience and learnings and discuss barriers and levers to working in the Canadian context. A special workshop on program evaluation will discuss practical approaches to evaluating process and outcomes. A special luncheon presentation on kids and nutrition will be given. By attending this landmark event you will find ideas that can help you improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your childhood obesity prevention program. The EPODE International Network (EIN) is the world’s largest network of community-based childhood prevention programs. The EIN was created to promote the adoption of the EPODE methodology for the prevention of childhood obesity. The EPODE methodology has been proven effective at reducing the prevalence of childhood obesity via community based programs designed to promote social norms for healthy active living. EPODE Canada is a regional initiative of the EIN to provide knowledge transfer between Canadian programs and EPODE inspired programs worldwide.
