The youth of today populate the first generation not expected to live longer than their parents.

While we know more than ever about how important daily movement is to our physical, social, and mental wellbeing, this knowledge hasn’t shifted the societal mindset enough to change the tides of obesity, which remains at global-epidemic levels.

In this panel, speakers will talk about how we can work to create new, healthy behaviors towards nutrition, fitness, and a balanced body and mind by leveraging technology, the right incentives, and our young people.
