Beginning with a spirited conversation with former Surgeon General David Satcher, who started it all with his 2001 Call to Action on obesity, and Jeff Koplan, former Director of the CDC, this workshop will answer these questions and more. Thought leaders from health policy, philanthropy, business, health care, early education, and other key sectors will present their visions for conquering obesity and offer practical steps to get there.
