  1. Confronting the Obesity and Diabetes Epidemics

    An estimated 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, or 9.4% of the population. In 2017, the costs of diagnosed diabetes totaled $327 billion, including $237 billion in health care costs and $90 billion in reduced productivity. Unfortunately, both the incidence of diabetes and obesity as a key risk factor continue to grow. Industry, government, advocacy groups, and patients are working together to reduce this health crisis in addition to its economic burden. This session will discuss what can be done differently in order to address this costly epidemic and will ask what is stopping us from achieving better outcomes.

  2. Food is Medicine

    We are in the midst of a food revolution fueled by shifting consumer preferences, emerging nutrition science, geopolitical shifts and health crises. A healthier food system would result in better well-being, lower healthcare costs, greater sustainability, and reduced disparities in the United States. With health-care-related costs continuing to rise, it is imperative to focus on food and nutrition as tools to eliminate poor health and to prevent obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other costly health problems. How do we raise awareness of food as an ingredient in our healthcare system and make best use of new developments in food technology and innovation? What are actionable solutions and policy ideas to prevent disease through nutrition and make our country healthier overall?
