AMA National Advocacy Conference
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said obesity is taking a financial, as well as physical, toll on the U.S. One in three American children are overweight or obese and the annual price tag for obesity-related conditions is $150 billion. Preventing obesity is not just a medical issue but a holistic effort that must begin early, she said. "Unless we make this a family effort, we won't be successful."
