How Hunger in America Drives the Obesity Epidemic In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt

    • News

At its first hunger summit in 50 years, the White House announced a plan last week to end hunger and reduce obesity by 2030. Is that really possible, and what will it take to get there? Andy speaks with Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, who specializes in obesity medicine, about the link between obesity and hunger plus how race, stress, and poverty play a role. Using examples from her life and her practice, she explains why obesity should be viewed and treated as the disease it is, using methods like medicine and surgery in tandem with diet and exercise.
