Who is Winning the Childhood Obesity Battle?

Dr. Dong-Chul Seo, Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Heath 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 gains and losses in the battle against childhood obesity. The panel will address which policies on childhood obesity are effective, if calorie counting, food labeling, and junk food taxes are fair to those who are not at risk for obesity; what is causing this surge in obesity, who is responsible for policing it, and what are the unintended consequences of the methods we’ve tried thus far?
