‘Weight of the Nation’ screening scheduled

Leaner Healthier Teen Revolution proudly hosts a screening of the HBO documentary, “The Weight of The Nation,” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Three Stages in Folsom.

In the United States, two-thirds of adults and one out of every three children are overweight or obese. The annual cost of treating obesity related disease and illnesses is currently estimated at $190.2 billion, soon to surpass smoking. Left unchecked, obesity’s effects on health, health care costs, and our productivity as a nation could cripple us.

The HBO Documentary “The Weight of the Nation” explores this epidemic, featuring case studies and interviews with some of our nation’s leading experts on this issue, in addition to individuals and their families struggling with obesity.

Hosted by Leaner Healthier Teen Revolution, an El Dorado Hills based national nutrition education weight loss program for teens, the screening will be followed by a moderated panel consisting of Sacramento’s leading authorities on the topic of weight loss, health and childhood obesity. The panel will be moderated by Good Day Sacramento’s Tina Macuha and include representatives from Mercy Medical Group, Students First and LHT Revolution.
