With Thanksgiving and end-of-the-year holidays coming soon, many Americans will eat, drink and get heavier. It is a challenging season for those working to control and reverse our nation's obesity epidemic.

Luckily this is an opportune time to remind everyone of the problem and discuss ideas and projects to combat obesity, especially in children, according to organizers of the annual 15-state Southern Obesity Summit.

The 2008 gathering will be held Nov. 9-11 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. Researchers and educators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), a summit host, will welcome healthcare professionals and academic, government and scientific leaders to develop and share strategies for fighting obesity.
