In the June session of Hot Topics in Practice, Healthy Food America Executive Director, Jim Krieger, MD, MPH, discusses policy and communications strategies for lowering sugar consumption.
Sugar is in many ways the “new tobacco”—a complex public health challenge that requires a multi-pronged approach to reduce exposures. In the June session of Hot Topics in Practice, Jim Krieger, MD, MPH, discusses a range of policy and communications strategies for lowering sugar consumption, especially among children and teens.
In this one-hour webinar, Dr. Krieger will review scientific evidence about the rise in sugar consumption, emphasizing how these data are guiding many of the currently proposed reforms to our policies, food systems, and retail environments. He will also discuss which prevention strategies can yield the most health care savings and which ones are gaining ground around the U.S.
Register today and learn evidence and strategies for promoting healthier food environments.
