The $174 Billion Question: How to Reduce Diabetes and Obesity

Diabetes and obesity have evolved from a national public health concern to a problem of epidemic proportions — a very costly problem. The direct medical costs and the indirect costs of diabetes are estimated at $174 billion yearly. This briefing, sponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and the United Health Foundation, looked at the scope of the problem, and some promising solutions.
