Surviving Abundance: Overweight Kids in Crisis

Produced by WHRO, Surviving Abundance: Overweight Kids in Crisis is a half-hour long documentary that examines the epidemic of childhood obesity. Childhood health professionals paint a grim picture for the future of overweight children unless we begin to make systemic changes that support more healthy choices. Local, state and national childhood health experts, including William H. Dietz, Jr., MD, PhD, Director of Nutrition & Physical Activity at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, discuss steps we can take to turn the tide. Surviving Abundance also highlights organizations with exemplary programs that effectively promote healthier lifestyles.
