Panel description: No one wants to hear it: You’re fat. But the nation’s obesity epidemic isn’t going anywhere. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development recently predicted that threequarters of Americans will be overweight or obese by 2020, and with that comes other health problems, from heart disease to stroke to diabetes. Hear from health experts — including the brains behind Georgia’s controversial child obesity ad campaign — about how they cut through resistance to the obesity message, as well as new ways the medical community is tackling the problem.
