Description:

The Friends of the Palisades Library is pleased to present Deborah A. Cohen, M.D., to discuss her new book, "A Big Fat Crisis: The Hidden Forces Behind the Obesity Epidemic and How We can End It." Dr. Cohen, a senior natural scientist at the RAND Corporation, sets aside the idea that overeating is primarily a reflection of individual weakness and lack of self-control. She proposes specific steps which we can take, individually and at a national level, to overcomme the obesity epidemic.
