Who Is Winning the Childhood Obesity Battle?
Dr. Dong-Chul Seo, Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Health Science at Indiana University; Dr. Marlene Schwartz of the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University; Karen Voci, Executive Director of Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare Foundation; and Dr. Frank Robinson, Executive Director of Partners for a Healthier Community, join Dr. Chris Economos, the new Balance Chair of Childhood Nutrition at Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition to discuss which policies on childhood obesity are effective. At the heart of the discussion lie the questions: what is causing obesity, who is responsible for policing it, and what are the unintended consequences of the methods we’ve tried thus far?
