New to HUBweek this year, the Ideas Dome Presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA will feature a series of more than four dozen sessions taking place across five days, exploring how we can build a more inclusive and equitable future.

According to the CDC, one in five children in the United States has overweight or obesity. Genetics, diet, and physical activity all play a role in this epidemic, but surprisingly, so does lack of sleep. Studies have shown that toddlers who don't get enough sleep (11-14 hours a sleep a day including naps), have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night are at a greater risk for childhood obesity. Join us for a discussion about children, nutrition and sleep.
