Obesity & The Food System

Preventing Obesity and Improving Nutrition: The Bloomberg American Health Initiative

December 6, 2018

Our nation’s obesity epidemic is the result of a broken food system. With support from the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, our Bloomberg Fellows are helping communities improve their nutrition and food security and learning about how systems change can improve community health.

The following video, featured at the inaugural Bloomberg American Health Summit, looks at obesity prevention and nutrition improvement; and highlights Bloomberg fellow alum Mila Neyra.


The 2018 Summit theme was From Local Action to National Impact: Overcoming Challenges and Improving Health. Read more about the Summit here.
