Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic in the United States. Wayne Moss, senior director of sports, fitness and recreation with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, will present a session at the upcoming Youth Sports Congress to raise awareness of the obesity problem among today’s youth, as well as provide practical solutions.
Held in conjunction with the Athletic Business Conference & Expo, the Congress is a three-day educational seminar for recreation professionals conducted by the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS). This year’s event takes place on Dec. 2-5 in Orlando, Fla.
Moss will speak on Dec. 3 beginning at 9:45 a.m. His session, entitled “Obesity Causes, Trends and Solutions,” will focus on the trends, statistics and a program that research shows is combating the obesity problem.
Attendees will leave this session with practical tips to support young people’s health, well-being and fitness. Delegates will be encouraged to join Moss for a frank discussion on the reality of childhood obesity in America.
Attendees will also learn how to identify and recognize causes of obesity and the health consequences of it; determine where obesity trends are headed; and identify strategies and programs that support healthy lifestyles for young people.
The Boys & Girls Club of America annually serves some 4.8 million young people through membership and community outreach in 4,300 Club facilities.
Moss designs sports, fitness, recreation and wellness curriculums that assist Clubs in program implementation. Additionally, Moss provides training, consultation and technical support to clubs in sports, fitness, recreation and wellness-related issues.
