Health care leaders gathered at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California Health Science campus to discuss the critical issue of obesity and the challenges it brings to uninsured, under-insured and lower-income communities. According to LA Public Health, one out of every five adults in LA County is obese (2005).

"Obesity is the most common answer I am hearing to my questions about the state of poor health in the United States, especially in our young kids. It is critical for us to better educate families on how to eat better and give people better tools to help themselves. To hear that our kids' lifespan is going to be shorter than their parents' due to poor eating habits is unthinkable. We have to do something," said Larry King, talk show host and founder of the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.
