What do health policy advisors for Clinton, Romney, Obama, Guiliani, and other major candidates have to say about the nation’s obesity epidemic? What’s the nation’s financial future if the obesity epidemic continues?
On Wed., Sept. 19, you can watch a free webcast of “The Obesity Challenge: What the Next President Should Do”, which will be presented on the Kaiser Foundation’s website.
The conference, scheduled from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm, will include roundtable discussions with presidential campaign health policy advisors for the major Democratic and Republican presidential candidates (tentatively scheduled at 10:00 for the Democrats and 11:00 for the Republicans.)
Check the Kaiser Foundation’s healthcare website for the final detailed schedule on Monday, September 17. The website itself is a great resource full of info about candidates’ positions on healthcare policy issues.
If you’re in or near DC, you may be able to attend in person. It’s at the Jack Morton Auditorium at The George Washington University.
It’s sponsored by The Obesity Society, the Strategies to Overcome and Prevent (STOP) Obesity Alliance at The George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, and the National Journal.
