The Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance of Canada (CDPAC) has announced a call for abstracts for the fourth CDPAC pan-Canadian Conference titled, “Integrated Chronic Disease Prevention: It Works!” The conference will be held at the Delta Ottawa City Centre, February 8-10, 2012.
The goal of the conference is to build upon the previous three conferences and focus on how individuals, organizations, strategies and sectors have collaboratively acted on the root causes of chronic disease in Canada.
The conference has six tracks, which will guide the framework for the creation of the conference scientific agenda. Those tracks include:
- Childhood obesity
- Emerging risk factors
- Food security
- Health inequities
- Health literacy
