The Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, CARE, and the Yale Peabody Museum will co-host weekly lunchtime screenings of the critically acclaimed HBO Documentary THE WEIGHT OF THE NATION, an exclusive four-part series addressing the national obesity epidemic.  

Screenings will be held each Friday in September from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Peabody auditorium beginning with Part 1:  Consequences on September 7.  Following each one-hour film, the audience is invited to participate in a brief discussion with an obesity expert.  The complete schedule follows.

Film Episodes, all Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Friday, September 7.  PART 1: Consequences
The first film in “The Weight of the Nation” series examines the scope of the obesity epidemic and explores the serious health consequences of being overweight or obese.

Friday, September 14.  PART 2: Choices
For all the remarkable high-tech tools available to medicine, for all the billions of dollars in drug research, there’s still no highly effective medication to prevent or reverse obesity.  The second film examines why.

Friday, September 21.  PART 3: Children in Crisis
The third film features interviews with experts who fear this may be the first generation of American children who will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents.

Friday, September 28.  PART 4: Challenges
The final film of the series examines the origins, severity and major driving forces of the obesity epidemic, and looks at opportunities for communities to fight back.
