Indy conference focuses on health of school children
While school is out for the summer and children are enjoying some time off, leaders from across the state of Indiana will be hard at work today as the 2014 Indiana School Health Network Conference begins.
Speakers at the conference include Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz and former governor, now Purdue University president, Mitch Daniels.
Nearly 200 people are expected during the two-day event. Conversations include examining food guidelines, such as reducing the amount of fat and salt in school meals while increasing fruit and fiber. Other conversations include school sports and the recently new findings on sports concussions.
The state-wide conference wraps up on Wednesday.
