Watch Video: IOM Roundtable on Obesity Solutions
The video centers on the idea of cross-sector work. When considering the challenge of obesity in the U.S., this idea is of particular importance. There are many conflicting theories of what causes obesity, and many ideas of what solutions will work to solve it.
