Addressing the Cost of Obesity in America’s Aging Population @ The Newseum's Knight Studio
Apr 30 @ 8:00 am – 10:30 am

Americans’ life expectancy is 80 years, but despite living longer, we are faced with more chronic disease and more people with multiple chronic conditions. Much of this is driven by obesity. Taken together, these facts are driving health care costs sky-high and threatening the long-term viability of our health system – including Medicare. Obesity and obesity-related disease costs the United States more than $200 billion dollars. 

CQ Roll Call’s policy breakfast briefing Addressing the Cost of Obesity in America’s Aging Population will bring together health leaders and policymakers for a health policy forum that will examine obesity in an aging American population and discuss comprehensive solutions to ease the health and economic burden for patients, families and society as a whole.

About Bossed Up

We help women and workplaces achieve sustainable success.

At Bossed Up, we believe that work, love, and wellness are connected – and it’s time to stop pretending otherwise. When something’s not right at home, we don’t show up fully in our careers. The data points to the same conclusions: happier, healthier employees are better for the bottom line.

Through research-based training that draws from the latest social science, cognitive and behavioral psychology and gender equity research, we help you get after your boss life.
