Tipping the Scales for Children: From Ethics to Action to Wellbeing

Move your mouse over the photo album above to navigate through photos from the Tipping the Scales conference last May.

On May 3, 2016, The Cooper Institute and SMU’s Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility brought together respected and impactful thought leaders to tackle one of the most pressing ethical issues of this era: the health of our children

The conference aims were to harness the expertise, skill set and commitment of those in attendance to set specific, achievable goals to improve the physical health of children residing in Dallas County; educate and inform conference participants of the issues; and inspire integrated and sustainable solutions to get Dallas healthy.
