Sponsored by Jamba Juice in cooperation with the University of San Francisco, and with the support of Dairy Council of California, UnitedHealthCare, and Quaker Oats
Part panel discussion and part open forum, the morning-long event is a coming-together of influential local figures in nutrition, health & wellness, education, philanthropy, media, and other fields. The core objective of the event is to share insights from a uniquely experienced group of leaders, and to build on efforts already underway on behalf of the health and wellness of Bay Area youth. It’s all about leveraging existing strategies and shedding new light on what more can be done to advance the cause of school wellness at the local level when we all work together.This is the second in a series of nationwide
Town Halls focused on "the learning connection" --- the positive effects
of improved nutrition and great opportunities for physical activity in
the school environment on academic performance. Topics to be touched
on: how to engage school stakeholders in the learning connection
discussion; how public-private partnerships can collaborate to improve
the nutrition-and-physical-activity environment in local schools; and
the biggest school-wellness challenges in Bay Area schools.
Agenda will include a 10-person panel discussion followed by roundtable discussion among attendees.
