Participants will discuss the latest research on current health trends and the importance of physical activity from infancy through adolescence with the goal of helping Austin become a leader in reducing childhood obesity. A healthier student population will not only increase academic performance but build a stronger workforce for Central Texas as well.

During the MOVE LEARN EXCEL Summit, nationally renowned researchers and educators will define specific actions each organization can take to promote health and fitness initiatives in every community. Organizations will learn how to implement trainings and physical activities into their current programs, as well as ways to collaborate with other organizations to maximize the impact on students across Central Texas.
