Healthy Living Forum 2014

Formally known as the Obesity Forum, the Healthy Living Forum was held on Thursday September 18th at the University of Nevada's Joe Crowley Student Union. As the change in name suggests, the 2014 Forum covered a wider range of topics, expanding from obesity, physical activity and nutrition, to further include topics related to tobacco and substance use.
