What's Your Club Doing to Combat Childhood Obesity?

The Challenge is open to individuals or teams from any sector, and presents an outlet for innovative solutions to childhood obesity that are outside the standard framework of scientific research publications.

The deadline for submitting entries is 5 pm EDT Aug. 15, 2012. To submit an idea for reducing childhood obesity, or to learn more about the competition, visit
