Track 1: Childhood Obesity Prevention

Food policy is the area of public policy concerning how food is produced, processed, distributed, and purchased. Many Childhood Obesity prevention Strategies and policies have been proposed to counter obesity and some of those proposed policies focus on altering the food system to influence dietary habits and thus obesity and nutrition by changing the choices available to consumers or by changing the incentives to choose. To reverse the obesity epidemic, places and practices need to support healthy eating and active living. The recommended strategies for  obesity prevention are Early Care, Nutrition Education Strategies, Physical Education Strategies, School Health Guidelines to Promote Healthy Eating, Physical Activity and School-Based Childhood Obesity Prevention Strategies- School Lunch Programs, After-School Programs.

Track 2: Child Nutrition

A healthy diet helps children grow and learn. It also helps obesity prevention and weight-related diseases, such as diabetes. Healthy eating can stabilize children’s energy, sharpen their minds, and even out their moods. While peer pressure and TV commercials for junk food can make getting kids to eat well seem impossible, Encouraging healthy eating behavior in children make a huge impact on their lifelong relationship with food choice and give them the best opportunity to grow into healthy, confident adults.

Track 3: Childhood Obesity

In order to understand Childhood Obesitythe mechanisms those underlie the etiology of obesitymolecular basis of obesity, cellular basis and genetics of obesity are needed to elucidate. The study of extreme human obesity caused by a single gene defects has provided a glimpse into the long-term regulation of body weight. More analysis of the wide-ranging effects of obesity will help researchers pinpoint the neurological implications and work to find ways for obesity prevention

Track 4: Rheumatic Diseases

A study found that childhood obesity was significantly associated with adult knee pain in men and childhood weight and body mass index (BMI) were associated with stiffness and dysfunction. Subjects who were overweight in both childhood and adult life had a significant increase in the adulthood walking knee pain compared with those who had normal weight in both childhood and adult life. These associations were most notable in males. These indicate the importance of reducing childhood obesity in preventing adulthood knee symptoms.

 Track 5: Behavioural & Environmental Factors

The past few decades have brought lifestyle changes throughout the world that have resulted in children having reduced physical activity and increased caloric intake. The amount of time that children spend playing outside has diminished during the past few decades and physical educationnutrition education programs in schools have been reduced or eliminated. Living a sedentary lifestyle, children are spending more time watching television and playing on computers than exercising. Both physical activity and nutrition-focused interventions are already in place in many primary schools. Self-monitoring, increasing sports and physical activity are few of the psychological and behaviour change strategies to treat the disease of obesity either alone or in conjunction with other treatments.

Track 6: Chronic Kidney Disease

Obesity is not only comorbidity for chronic kidney disease (CKD) but may also be a risk factor for CKD. Epidemiological correlations and pathophysiological changes have been observed associating obesity with CKD. Low birth weight may be associated with both obesity and low nephron mass, leading to CKD later in life. Elevated levels of adipokines, such as leptin and adiponectin, in obesity may be factors in CKD pathogenesis and progression. Furthermore, various other factors, such as hypertension, increased cardiovascular morbidity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, and lipotoxicity, may play significant roles in the pathogenesis of CKD in obesity. Reduction in obesity, which is a potentially modifiable risk factor, might help decrease the burden of CKD in the population. Apart from individualized options, community-based interventions have the potential to create a strong impact in this condition.

Track 7: Preventing Obesity from Infancy

Research on the prenatal period and first year of life point to clues to reduce obesity in women and preventing it in children. The researchers pointed to excessive gestational weight gain, maternal smoking during pregnancy, fewer months of breastfeeding and shorter duration of sleep during infancy as potential targets. Factors associated with increased risk for overweight or obesity in infancy and early childhood include excessive maternal weight gain or smoking during gestation, maternal depression shorter-than-recommended duration of breast-feeding, and suboptimal amounts of sleep during infancy.

Track 8: Pulmonary Function, Allergy & Immunity

Asthma is one of the most common significant chronic diseases affecting children. The number of people worldwide affected by asthma may be as high as 300 million. The high degree of heritability, external factors such as air pollution, immune sensitization, nutrition and obesity can affect disease risk. Obesity is associated with reduced quality of life and excess risk for several chronic diseases. The change in obesity prevalence in recent decades has been greatest among children. Obesity-related comorbidites such as gastroesophageal reflux and sleep apnea have yet to be conclusively linked to increased asthma risk in children.

Track 9: Paediatric Infectobesity

In addition to the imbalance between energy intake and expenditure, sedentary lifestyle, a diet high in saturated fats and sugars, and genetic predisposition, many other factors may be involved in obesity. The presence of either symbiotic or pathogenic microorganisms may contribute to the development of obesity. Gut microorganisms are believed to be involved in the development of obesity by two different and complementary mechanisms. They can extract energy from non-digestible polysaccharides and produce low-grade inflammation. Although the primary cause of obesity will always be a misbalance between energy intake and expenditure, its association with microbiology is only a small demonstration of how complex this multifactorial condition is. Nevertheless, beneficial microorganisms as well as pathogenic microorganisms deserve more attention as evidence of their contribution to metabolic disorders continues to accumulate.

Track 10: Lifelong effects

Childhood obesity can have a harmful effect on the body in a variety of ways. Obese children are more likely to have High blood pressure and high cholesterol, which are risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (CVD). In one study, 70 percent of obese children had at least one CVD risk factor, while 39 percent had two or more. Increased risk of impaired glucose tolerance, insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.  Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea and asthma. Joint problems and musculoskeletal discomfort. Fatty liver disease, gallstones and gastro-esophageal reflux (i.e., heartburn). If children are overweight, obesity in adulthood is likely to be more severe.

Track 11: Endocrine Disorders & Diabetes

Several endocrine abnormalities are reported in obesity. In case of certain disorders, endocrine glands metabolism slows down and the body does not spend taken calories. This is typical for all individuals suffering from hypothyroidism. They are prone to weight gain although they might not have changed their eating habits and do not consume high-caloric foods. Another endocrine disorder associated with obesity is Cushing's disease. It develops due to excess of cortisol, a hormone produced by the cortex of the adrenal gland. Hypopituitarism is one more endocrine dysfunction that may be blamed for obesity. The reason why hypopituitarism leads to obesity is not completely understood.

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition in which the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas. It is associated with modifiable lifestyle risk factors and also has strong genetic and family related risk factors. It is managed with a combination of regular physical activity, healthy eating and weight reduction. As type 2 diabetes is often progressive, most people will need oral medications and/or insulin injections in addition to lifestyle changes.

Track 12: Obesity Surgery

The prevalence of morbid obesity has risen sharply in recent years, even among paediatric patients. Bariatric surgery is used increasingly in an effort to induce weight loss, improve medical comorbidities, enhance quality of life, and extend survival. Every effort is made to achieve non-surgical weight loss, but for a small group of children, medical, behavioural and nutritional approaches to weight loss may not be enough. Due to the considerable lifestyle changes surgery will bring about, the family and child must continue to commit to a strict program of healthy eating and exercise before he or she can be a candidate for surgery.

Track 13: Impact of Steroids & Hormones 

Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate processes in our body. They are one factor in causing obesity. The hormones leptin and insulin, sex hormones and growth hormone influence our appetite, metabolism and body fat distribution. People who are obese have levels of these hormones that encourage abnormal metabolism and the accumulation of body fat. A system of glands, known as the endocrine system, secretes hormones into our bloodstream. The endocrine system works with the nervous system and the immune system to help our body cope with different events and stresses. Excesses or deficits of hormones can lead to obesity and on the other hand, obesity can lead to changes in hormones.

Track 14: Childhood Obesity at Gene Level

Obesity tracks in families, and one of the strongest predictors of child overweight is the BMI of the mother and father. In recent years, progress was made in identifying genes that may contribute to this effect. The FTO (fat mass and obesity-associated) gene is a large gene on chromosome 16. The absolute risk generated by the FTO gene is relatively modest, is found in Caucasian populations, and is modifiable by environmental factors. The Human Obesity Gene Map summarizes the present situation in the field of common polygenic obesity. The genes include members of the leptin–melanocortin pathway, proinflammatory cytokines and uncoupling proteins. The largest numbers of studies have been carried out on ADRB2 (β2 adrenoreceptor) and PPARG (Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor Gamma) a Protein Coding gene, but the fact that they also have reported associations with asthma and Type 2 Diabetes, respectively.

Track 15: Diagnosis & Treatments

Calculation of child's body mass index (BMI) determines where it falls on the BMI-for-age growth chart. The BMI helps indicate if your child is overweight for his or her age and height. Treatment for childhood obesity is based on your child's age and if he or she has other medical conditions. Treatment usually includes changes in your child's diet and level of physical activity. In certain circumstances, treatment may include medications or weight-loss surgery. Weight-loss surgery may be an option for severely obese adolescents who have been unable to lose weight using conventional weight-loss methods. However, as with any type of surgery, there are potential risks and long-term complications. Also, the long-term effects of weight-loss surgery on future growth and development are largely unknown.

Track 16: Impact on Neurodegenerative Diseases 

Neurodegenerative disorders are amongst the leading causes of worldwide disability, morbidity and decreased quality of life. They are increasingly associated with the concomitant worldwide epidemic of obesity. Although the prevalence of both AD and PD continue to rise, the available treatment strategies to combat these conditions remain ineffective against an increase in global neurodegenerative risk factors. Obesity is associated with several pathologies including neuropathies and the ability of the nervous system to repair following injury. While further research is needed in characterizing the nature of the effect of obesity on the nervous system, there are current studies suggesting that such effects can be modified.

Track 17: Visceral & Gastrointestinal Disorders

Obesity is also associated with a number of GI and hepatobiliary conditions. Recent study report: waist circumference and waist–hip ratio were strongly associated with the presence of Barrett's esophagus, albeit in males only.  Another recent report also demonstrated an association of visceral fat and fat near the gastroesophageal junction with Barrett's, and with increased esophageal inflammation and high-grade dysplasia in Barrett's patients, independent of BMI. Obesity, the metabolic syndrome and rapid weight loss are modifiable risk factors of gallstone formation. Obesity is also associated with an increased risk of the spectrum of non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD) including simple steatosis, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

Track 18: Vaccines for Obesity

Obesity causes many problems in humans, but the treatment options for obesity are very limited. It is widely accepted that a combination of dieting and physical activity is the most effective way of reducing obesity. However, these methods are highly dependent on the motivation of individual subjects. Recent studies have shown that therapeutic vaccines may be new targets for the development of anti-obesity medication. The therapeutic vaccines could treat alternatively the obesity by suppressing the appetite-stimulating hormone and blocking absorption of nutrients. Active vaccination against target molecules is another therapeutic vaccine approach. The recombinant virus-like particle (VLP) has a similar structure to viruses but lacks sufficient genetic information to replicate. Thus, this type of vaccine is less dangerous compared with live virus vaccines.

Track 19: Mushroom Supplement 

A supplement from the Ganoderma lucidum mushroom slowed the pace of weight gain by apparently altering bacteria inside the digestive system of mice. Chinese medicine has used a number of different mushrooms to treat a variety of conditions over thousands of years. One of these is called reishi, or Ganoderma lucidum, which is believed to improve health and lifespan. It has also been tested as a possible cancer treatment as some research has suggested it is beneficial to the immune system.

Track 20: Antibiotics and Obesity

New research has suggested a link between the use of antibiotics in infants during the first 2 years of life and later childhood obesity. It is known that antibiotics alter gut microbiota and it has been postulated that this alters metabolism, which may lead to obesity. However, despite three cohort studies to date that suggest this link exists, the evidence so far is weak and a direct causal relationship has not been established. Even organic vegetables have antibiotics in them because about 75 percent of antibiotics fed to livestock are excreted out, and in the manure used to fertilize fields.  The only way this can change is if the multinational food industry stops using antibiotics for growth purposes.

Track 21: Cardiac Functional Changes

Changes in cardiac geometry and function resulting from obesity are observed as early as childhood, according to the results of a new study. The relationship between obesity and cardiovascular risk is difficult to assess because obesity is associated with glucose intolerance, diabetes, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol levels. Compared with the nonobese group, the obese children had thicker LV walls, a 29% larger LV end-diastolic volume, and a 40% larger LV mass. Left atrial (LA) volume, LA volume index, right atrial area, and right ventricular diameter were also significantly larger in the obese children. The differences remained after adjustment for physical development and growth, although the indexed LV systolic and diastolic diameters were similar between the two groups.

 Track 22: Current Studies

Our recent study provides definitive evidence that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages directly impacts weight gain and paediatric obesity. Obesity Prevention Center suggests that all calories are not alike from a metabolic perspective.  Reducing consumption of highly processed carbohydrates – like white bread, white rice, refined breakfast cereals, and sugary beverages – can provide a metabolic boost of several hundred calories a day, equal to an hour of physical activity.  This metabolic boost may be a key to successful long-term weight loss maintenance. Genetics and Endocrinology, analysed data from about 90,000 people, they discovered six new genetic variants linked with body mass index. Most of the variants highlight genes active in the brain, suggesting that differences in appetite regulation may play a role in obesity. The team is now performing larger-scale studies in an attempt to identify additional genetic variants with the goal of one day developing an effective treatment for obesity.

Track 23: Healthcare

Few studies had quantified the impact of obesity on healthcare utilization, costs and expenditures during childhood. Analyses of the economic consequences of childhood obesity had previously also largely been limited to the USA. Overweight children had annual total healthcare expenditures US$180 higher than children with a normal BMI, while obese children had US$220 higher expenditures on average. Large investments through research and prevention are needed and are likely to provide strong returns in cost savings.

Track 25: Biomedical Engineering  and Obesity

The obesity solutions were primarily in three areas: devices, materials, and information management. Biomedical engineering community developed devices for minimally invasive surgery for laparoscopy to implantation and endoscopy with suturing device for gastric treatment and related applications. Signalling devices, implantable and wearable devices for monitoring purposes was also developed. New and innovative engineering approaches need to address clinical problems related to energy balance, intake, and expenditure. Novel sensors, devices, imaging, and other technologies, including technologies to detect biochemical markers of energy balance are expected to be developed and evaluated by collaborating engineers, physical scientists, mathematicians, and scientists from other relevant disciplines with expertise in obesity and nutrition.

Track 26: Undeserved Communities

Underserved communities have the highest need for built environment interventions because they are characterized by limited financial resources and poor infrastructure. There is a lack of ready access to healthy foods (i.e., fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein).  Families in poorer communities often live in food deserts where supermarkets and grocery stores are scarce or charge higher prices for healthy foods than processed foods. To make matters worse, many underserved communities, particularly in urban areas, have an overabundance of fast food establishments that are often located near schools and playgrounds. Multidisciplinary approach can reduce obesity rates by creating healthy living environments that promote the transition from healthful intention to healthful behaviour.

Track 28: Child Obesity Statistics

Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years. The percentage of children aged 6–11 years in the United States who were obese increased from 7% in 1980 to nearly 18% in 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adolescents aged 12–19 years who were obese increased from 5% to nearly 21% over the same period. This percentage is increasing in an alarming mode which is ultimately leading to several other body diseases at such a tender age. To reduce child obesity, there should be proper planned health diet for the children a regular physical exercise is also needed in order to improve the condition in a better way.

Importance and Scope

Childhood obesity is a serious medical condition that affects children and adolescents. It occurs when a child is well above the normal weight for his or her age and height. As methods to determine body fat directly are difficult, the diagnosis of obesity is often based on Body Mass Index BMI. Due to the rising prevalence of obesity in children and its many adverse health effects it is being recognized as a serious public health concern. The vast majority of obesity represents an imbalance in calories ingested versus calories expended. Genetic factors, environmental factors, lifestyle preferences, and cultural factors seem to play major role in the rising prevalence of obesity worldwide. The effects of obesity on children have a huge impact and can range from low self-esteem to increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. The most effective cure for childhood obesity is prevention.

Childhood obesity prevention will require both a personal and social/cultural change in lifestyle. A large volume of current research will help clarify what will be most helpful. Hope Childhood Obesity 2016 would make it half the way.

Why Atlanta

Atlanta has been involved actively in the childhood obesity programs making a difference in the childhood obesity epidemic. Each year Center Helping Obesity in Children End Successfully, Inc. (CHOICES), based in Kennesaw and downtown Atlanta, hosts two expos to bring health education into underserved communities. The program’s focus is on nutrition education and physical activity in order to help children maintain a healthy weight. They provide year round programs for families and present special events with community partners. The Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's Strong4Life program combines a fun camp, parent involvement and healthy education for kids struggling with their weight. The Active Schools Acceleration Project (ASAP) is an entrepreneurial non-profit focused on increasing quality physical activity in schools. The organization will provide $1,000 to 1,000 schools ($1 million total) across the country to help implement one of three innovative movement programs and seven Atlanta-area schools were awarded monies for the 2013-2014 school year. The other program called PowerUp! after-school combats childhood obesity in Georgia on the local level by encouraging physical activity and healthier eating habits for Georgia's kids. This initiative is led by the Resurgens Charitable Foundation, whose mission, among others, is to address childhood obesity. Some of PowerUP!'s other partners are the YMCA of Metropolitan Atlanta, fitAtlanta Magazine, and the Georgia Department of Education.

Considering the proactiveness of Atlanta to prevent the obesity epedemic, we opted the city would be one of the finest places for a conference on Childhood Obesity.
