ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a wide variety of activities at all levels aimed at reducing the epidemic of childhood obesity, as shown by the gathering of more than 700 experts from many fields in early June 2005 for Environmental Solutions to Obesity in America's Youth. The goal of the conference is to try to identify the successful environmental interventions that have been developed across the country, and then to disseminate them more broadly. The major accomplishment is to bring together a very interdisciplinary group of experts in environmental health sciences, and in fields like planning and transportation, and policy makers to work together and think collaboratively.
