Championing Public Health Nutrition Policies

Join us at the historic Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel, as health and food-policy experts, policymakers, and journalists from across Canada and around the world explore how to reform public health nutrition policies.  The Chateau Laurier, located next door to the East Block, is known to some as the third chamber of Parliament.

We'll look at school foods, nutrition information on labels and menus, food taxes, marketing to children, reformulating foods to minimize added salt and harmful fats, and much more.

Confirmed speakers include Dr. Walter Willett, Dr. Mary L'Abbe,  Ms. Leslie Beck,  Dr. Mike  Ms. Shari Graydon Dr. Michel Boivin, Dr. Mary McKenna, Dr. David Katz,  Mr. Peter Julian, Dr. Brian Cook, Dr. Kathy Baylis, Mr. Tom Wappel, Dr. Wilbert Keon, Ms. Rosemary Hignett, Dr. Lawrence Appel,  and more to come.
