CINCH hosted its 2nd Combating Obesity: The Healthy Hampton Roads Leadership Summit on March 22, 2013 at Eastern Virginia Medical School. The purpose of the summit was to provide "hands-on", practical information and resources to help put in action the obesity prevention strategies that were presented at the 1st summit in Oct. 2011.  Based on initial feedback from attendees, we accomplished our goal!

When asked what they enjoyed most about this summit,  here are some of the responses we received:
