With appreciation to Ministry of Health and

Life-course Perspectives for Health Promotion and
Obesity PreventionWorkshop Goals and Structure
  • Introduce the life-course perspective why we are
    connecting children and older adults in obesity
    prevention
  • Describe the prevalence, risk factors and
    consequences of childhood obesity and identify
    intervention strategies for childhood obesity
    prevention
  • Identify aging facts and stereotypes, key
    determinants of healthy aging, strategies for
    promoting healthy aging and the role of
    physical activity in healthy living

3
Life-course Perspectives for Health Promotion and
Obesity PreventionGoals and structure, cont
  • Solicit international perspectives from the
    audience on what works/doesnt work in obesity
    prevention across the life-course
  • Discuss cross cutting issues in risk factors and
    solutions and roles of different key stakeholders
    in formulating solutions
  • Mobilize action by having each participant
    identify two concrete actions for preventing
    childhood obesity and promoting healthy aging.

Welcome and Introductions
  • What are your affiliations? Professional
    backgrounds?
  • What responsibility for obesity prevention?
  • Do you work with children, older adults, or all
    populations
  • What do you hope to get out of todays workshop?

5
Life-Course Perspectives
  • Aging is from birth to death
  • The past shapes the present and future too
  • Social conditions experienced in early life
    influence life choices and opportunities
  • Health behaviors adopted in childhood influence
    later life
  • Health in childhood influences health in later
    life
  • Its never to soon to adopt healthy behaviors and
    never to late

6
Life-Course Themes
  • Each life transition presents a unique
    opportunity for interventions to inform policy
    and practice that can improve health and quality
    of life
  • Interventions can be focused on particular stages
    or on the entire life-course
  • Chronic diseases likely result from the complex
    interplay of critical and sensitive period, and
    trajectory and accumulation processes

7
Life-Course Perspective Epidemiological Approach
  • Provides a way to conceptualize how underlying
    socio-environmental determinants of health,
    experienced at different life course stages, can
    differentially influence the development of
    chronic diseases
  • Life course epidemiology examines a range of
    potential processes through which exposures
    acting at different stages of life can, singly or
    in combination, influence disease risk
  • The importance of timing is illustrated by
    knowledge that the particular stage of life when
    an exposure occurs can be important in
    understanding its later effects

Case ScenariosHow typical is Each ? What are the
Causes and Solutions
  • A child is normal weight in primary school but
    becomes obese as an older adult
  • A child is obese in primary school but becomes
    normal weight in mid and later life
  • A child is normal weight in primary school and
    remains normal weight throughout life
  • A child is obese in primary school and remains
    obese
