Health and Physical Education Teachers Face Obesity Epidemic with New Medicine: Physical Literacy

BEND, OR, October 12, 2017 – As World Obesity Day passes, newly released data shows the United States leading the world in childhood obesity.

This means investment in obesity treatment services, early intervention and prevention.” This weekend over 200 health and physical educators, who reach over 100,000 students, will travel from all over the state for the 103rd Annual Oregon Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) conference to learn how to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic using a new approach called physical literacy.
