Regional Differences in the Obesity Crisis

This is HCPLive® Crisis Point, a comprehensive look at the public health crises affecting the United States today, with global implications tomorrow.

So far, we have examined the scope of the obesity crisis and the clinical aspects and burdens that make up both the treatment and complications of care in patients with obesity.

Our episode today once more widens the idea of a public health crisis outside of the clinical burdens back into the public health space, with the thematic element of the regional differences in obesity rates in both the United States and beyond.

Topics discussed in the episode include issues in nutritional options, particular regional burdens, the connection between the United States and third-world countries, food insecurity and poverty, as well as the use of the phrase “food desert”.
