arbcombo -- Chair’s Lecture Series: We Are What We Eat and Breathe, and Build Posted: 11 Jul 2012 11:39:24
“Presentation” is now available for today’s webcast. We Are What We Eat and Breathe, and Build — Preventing chronic diseases and protecting the environment by building healthy communities http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/lectures/speakers/jackson.htm Richard Jackson, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.A.P. University of California, Los Angeles Wednesday, July 11, 2012 12 Noon PDT Byron Sher Auditorium, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California California and the United States face grave challenges in economy, environment, and health. “Easy oil” is gone and other resources are being depleted. Global heating increasingly threatens human health and species survival worldwide. Medical care costs will continue to escalate for reasons of technology and population aging, and the tripling of obesity and doubling of diabetes rates will impose staggering health and productivity costs, so that by the year 2030 eleven percent of U.S. adults will have a Body Mass Index over 40 (100 pounds overweight). These challenges demand solutions that solve problems across the domains of economy, environment, and health. To meet these fiscal, social, and environmental needs, California must demand top-down and bottom-up solutions. California is showing leadership in greenhouse gas reduction and sustainability, in new technologies and pollution reduction, but needs a vision for human habitats, homes and offices, neighborhoods, and transit systems that salvage health as well as the economy and the planet: communities that use fewer resources and at the same time offer rich engagement in life, meaningful work, local healthy food, and plenty of “incidental” physical activity. Dr. Jackson will present strategies to get these options to work.
