Call for Abstracts – Posters
(via PDF and/or recorded PowerPoint presentations)

The 8th Conference on Recent Advances in the Prevention and Management of Childhood and Adolescent Obesity provides an excellent forum for authors to present their work in an interactive setting. We are inviting those with newly captured research to submit their abstracts. Findings/data do not have to be fully available to submit an abstract, but should be completed by the time of the conference.

Call for late-breaking abstracts on COVID-19: As we strive to have this year’s conference cover hot topics and the latest research, we invite submissions of late-breaking research on COVID-19 in addition to general abstracts.
