Unhealthy Marketing to Kids Forum
Date: Tuesday 11 June 2019
Venue: Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
The one day Public Health Forum will focus on Unhealthy Marketing to Kids. The purpose of the forum is to address the issue of tackling the ineffective controls on marketing alcohol, junk food and gambling products to our kids, which has stood as a clear cause and where people working in different corners of the public health world are tackling the same demons.
The one day program has been designed to provide lively and productive discussions and contributions from all professionals engaged in public health with a focus on junk food, alcohol and gambling marketing. The Forum aims to compare experiences and move towards a more commonly agreed solution.
