National Prevention Summit:
Prevention, Preparedness, and Promotion

October 26–27, 2006

Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill
Washington, D.C.

Building on last year's 3rd National Prevention Summit, the upcoming 2006 National Prevention Summit will focus on disease prevention, health preparedness, and health promotion and will feature innovative programs that are making a difference in communities across the country to build a HealthierUS.  These programs are focused on healthy lifestyle choices—eating a nutritious diet, being physically active, making healthy choices, and getting preventive screenings—to help prevent major health threats and burdens such as obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, heart disease, and stroke.  One special emphasis this year will be the prevention of childhood overweight and obesity.  Another emphasis will be on preparing for public health emergencies, such as avian influenza.

There is no cost to attend this Summit.  Early registration is recommended as space is limited.  There will be no onsite registration.
