Today’s children face a variety of challenges in their lives. Problems like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol used to be limited to adults. Now, those health issues are quickly becoming realities for children. Overweight kids suffer emotionally as well, facing increased risks of suicide, depression, bullying and low self-esteem.

To address these issues and present solutions for preventing and treating childhood obesity, the Family and Consumer Sciences Department of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, in partnership with Cape May County Human Services Advisory Council, have organized this Children’s Health Summit.

Noted speakers from Rutgers University and the New Jersey Department of Education will discuss the issues, present the latest research and offer solutions for parents, teachers, coaches, health care providers, counselors, and all caring adults who work with children. Local professionals will be on hand to discuss community resources.

Continental breakfast and light lunch will be provided. Continuing education credits will be available.
