Mapping U.S. Obesity: Seeing the Big Picture

The vast majority of research on the obesity epidemic has focused on individual-level factors and has relatively neglected how local factors matter. LSU sociologist Tim Slack presents findings from recent studies conducted with Pennington Biomedical colleagues on how obesity prevalence varies across the U.S. Their work shows that county-level obesity is geographically concentrated in regional clusters of significantly high and low rates of obesity. Their research shows that not only local factors like population composition and access to healthcare influence this reality, but these relationships systematically differ between regions suggesting that one-size-fits-all policies to combat obesity may miss the mark.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for free food and networking, and the talk will start at 6 p.m. People of all ages are welcome, so please spread the word and join us for a fun and informative night!
