Hungry for Change: Food Insecurity, Stress, & Obesity


The 11th Annual Sugar, Stress, Environment, and Weight (SSEW) Symposium, presented by the UCSF Center for Obesity Assessment, Study and Treatment (COAST) and the UCLA Resnick Program for Food Law and Policy, brings together leading researchers to present the latest science on how the food we eat and the stress we experience create a perfect storm, accelerating one of the most urgent public health crises of our time: the obesity epidemic.


Join SSEW Researchers and our UC-Wide community on October 25th, 2017 from 9:30am-4:15pm at the University of California, Los Angeles to witness critical exchange between forward-thinking researchers, healthcare providers, and policy advocates on innovative approaches that move the needle forward on hunger, obesity, social equity, and public health. Don't miss this unique opportunity to participate!
