GENYOUth's San Francisco
“Learning Connection” Town Hall
Thursday, Nov. 7 | 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
McLaren Conference Center 252

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.

Hosts: Jamba Chairman, President and CEO James D. White, GENYOUth Foundation CEO, Alexis Glick, University of San Francisco Provost, Jennifer Turpin, with support of Dairy Council of California and Quaker Oats

Moderator: Olympic medalist and sports correspondent Summer Sanders

The Panel will feature a school nutrition administrator, Dairy Council of California executives, University of San Francisco faculty, an area chef and celebrated food writer, representatives of the NFL/San Francisco 49ers, Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador and winner of GENYOUth's AdVenture Capital program, and others.
