KQED’s ‘Health Dialogues’ Program To Examine Childhood Obesity in California
KQED's "Health Dialogues," a live, monthly call-in program sponsored by the California Endowment to examine health care issues in the state, tonight will examine childhood nutrition and obesity. About 25% of U.S. children are obese, and California, "for all its health food fads, is no exception" to the trend toward childhood obesity. The program will examine local programs developed to improve nutrition and promote exercise among children to address the problem. The program will air at 7 p.m. PT. Check local radio listings for availability. The program will be available online in RealPlayer Audio within one day of the broadcast (KQED, "Health Dialogues" release, 1/8).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
