HBO 'Weight of the Nation' free screenings of 4-part series on obesity epidemic

Thursday, March 7, 2013

U.S. citizens stubbornly remain obese despite decades of efforts by movie stars, fitness gurus, educators and religious leaders to get Americans into shape. Instead of becoming healthier, obesity has increased dramatically over the past 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. HBO is taking a shot at the obesity problem with a multipart series and public health campaign billed "The Weight of the Nation," and sharing the series at the community level to inspire solutions-seeking discussions. The City of Marysville, YMCA and Snohomish Health District invite you to attend the free four-part documentary series featuring case studies and interviews with leading experts and individuals and families struggling with obesity. The series spotlights the facts and myths of this urgent public health issue, shows how obesity impacts the nation’s health and cripples the health care system – and what individuals and communities can do.
