Reducing Childhood Obesity in San Diego County with Cheryl Moder (The Pulse Audio)

1/13/2017; 41 minutes

The number of overweight and obese children in the United States has doubled – and quadrupled among adolescents – in the last 30 years. San Diego County is making some strides in combating the epidemic but the rates remain alarming, especially among Hispanic children and those in disadvantaged communities, says Cheryl Moder, founding director of the Childhood Obesity Initiative. In this month's Pulse podcast, Moder paints the full picture of San Diego County's status relative to childhood obesity, using results from the latest report published in late 2016, and the impacts of the broad-based collaborative efforts she directs.
