Discussion: The global obesity epidemic

A new report indicates that obesity is on the rise, and for the first time more of the world is overweight than underweight. What’s driving the epidermic, and should we be concerned? What are the potential long-term consequences? And as obesity begins to impact emerging economies, can the trend be linked to increasing wealth? How can this problem be tackled worldwide? Join us for a discussion with Dr. Fang Hai, professor at the China Center for health development studies at Peking University; Dr. David Rutstein, vice president for medical affairs at United Family Healthcare; and Dr. Eric Ding, epidemiologist and health economist at Harvard School of Public Health.
