There is little disagreement that obesity is a serious problem in the U.S. However, solutions to prevent obesity are complex and often difficult to put into practice. This Public Health Grand Rounds will bring together experts from the local public health community to discuss how barriers to healthy eating and physical activity can lead to childhood, adolescent, and adult obesity. The discussion will focus on food, physical activity, and built environment policies to help decrease obesity and on the role of health care providers in preventing obesity.
Speakers to be annouced.
