In June, EPOCH-Translate Stream 1 leads Brittany Johnson and Lene Seidler represented the TOPCHILD Collaboration at the International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity 2023 Annual Meeting in Uppsala, Sweden. This was the biggest attendance to date with over 1300 attendees.

Britt chaired a symposium ‘Enhancing the design of interventions to change health behaviours’ with TOPCHILD Collaborators, including preliminary findings from the intervention coding component of TOPCHILD ‘The power of collaboration: deconstructing and learning from existing early obesity prevention interventions in the TOPCHILD Collaboration’.
