“Big Soda and Its’ Impact on Health”
PRESENTER: Marianne Carter
DESCRIPTION: Sugar-sweetened beverages are a leading contributor to the obesity epidemic, especially in children. These beverages (soda, sweet tea, sports drinks) are the number one source of added sugars in the American diet. In addition to obesity, consumption has been linked to many illnesses, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Sugary beverages are cheap, produced and served in large portions, available just about everywhere, and marketed relentlessly by “Big Soda”. Attend this session and hear about a grassroots campaign to reduce sugary beverage consumption – and how you can get involved.

“Ed Camp PE Class – A New Model of Instruction”
PRESENTER: Loriann Minka, William Penn High School
DESCRIPTION: The purpose of the EdCamp PE Model is to create an experience for students that is more enjoyable; fostering a lifelong love of being physically active! The goal is for students to collaborate with each other in Physical Education in a way that leads to a deeper understanding of content and skill. Students are given more voice and choice in activities, and ways to demonstrate their learning. If Physical Education can be that “Hook” into leading a healthier lifestyle, students will continue to participate in, and advocate for meaningful physical activity long after they’ve completed an EdCamp course.
