FTC Conference Center 601 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20001 | Directions & Nearby

Event Description

The FTC and the Department of Health and Human Services jointly sponsored a forum planned as a follow-up to the agencies' 2005 workshop on the same topic. The forum allowed members of the food and media industries and self-regulatory groups to report on their progress in implementing initiatives addressing food and beverage marketing to children that respond to the agencies' recommendations in their 2006 joint report entitled, "Perspectives on Marketing, Self-Regulation, and Childhood Obesity." The forum also provided an opportunity for consumer groups, advertising specialists, and other key experts to opine on the progress of actions undertaken to date, and to consider what steps should be taken next.
