Upcoming DataSpeak on Health Behaviors of School-Age Children (HBSC)

This looked interesting.  I can't attend, but I thought that others might wish to do so.

The MCH Information Resource Center, funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau at the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), is pleased to announce the next program in the DataSpeak Series:  "New Findings on Health Behaviors of School-Age Children (HBSC)." Dr.Ronald Iannotti and Dr. Bruce Simons-Morton from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development will present new international findings from the 2005/2006 HBSC survey. They will highlight findings onU.S. school-age children's behaviors related to obesity and physical activity, bullying, and substance use, comparing their prevalence in this country to that in other nations. They will also discuss international differences in health policies related to these behaviors.

This program will take place on 
Wednesday, December 3, 2008, 
at 2:00 p.m., EST (1pm Central, 12noon Mountain, 11am Pacific).
