The State of Obesity 2015 Better Policies for a Healthier America

The State of Obesity 2016 Better Policies for a Healthier America Southern Obesity Summit November 14, 2016 Richard Hamburg Interim President and CEO Overview For first time, documented decreases in adult rates Significant disparities persist Prevention is key - It is easier to prevent in children than reverse trends later. Future progress will require we examine which state programs are working and bring these efforts to scale nationwide. Adult Obesity Rates (2015) States With The Highest Obesity Rates 9 of the 10 states with the highest rates of adult obesity are in

women Childhood Obesity Trends Over the last decade, childhood obesity rates have remained around 17% Being overweight or obese puts children at higher risk for health problems such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, cancer, asthma and osteoarthritis during childhood and as they age Diabetes and Obesity Type 2 Diabetes rates nearly doubled in the past 20 years 10 of the 12 states with highest type 2 diabetes rates are in the South Hypertension and Obesity The top 10 states with the highest rates of hypertension are in the South Poor Health, Increased Care Spending

Current rates put 78 million Americans at increased risk of health problems Cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and many more Obese adults spend 42 percent more on direct healthcare costs Income, Education Effects More than 33% of adults who earn less than $15,000 per year are obese 33% of adults who dont finish high school are obese Compared with 24.6 percent of those who earn at least $50,000. Versus obesity rate of 21.5 percent of those who finish college or technical college

Protective effect of education extends to their children Low Income Students in the South 51 % of U.S. public school students are from low income families and are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. 57 % of students in the South are low-income. 13 of 15 Southern states have rates above 50 %. Why are we still concerned?

Despite signs of stabilizing, rates are dangerously high Obesity increases the risk for dozens of health comorbidities Baby Boomers coming on to Medicare will further exacerbate our long-term fiscal outlook Obesity carries national security risks. It has negative implications for the education, agricultural, and transportation sectors. Public health and prevention funding remains inadequate. Total federal funding for CDC chronic disease prevention activities is about $1.2 billion. Bringing Initial Steps to Scale Obesity prevention should be considered a major priority for reducing related health care spending and overall health care costs Community-based,

comprehensive approaches (like CDC chronic disease prevention programs) seem to work best. ROI is critical. Bringing Initial Steps to Scale Addressing primary risk factors Broad, sustainable funding of evidence-based interventions, environmental, and systems changes Poor Nutrition Inadequate Physical Activity Investments in Partnerships to Improve Community Healthwill not reach all Americans. Funding is in danger for FY 2017. Expanded diabetes and heart disease funding

Connecting all Americans to preventive services and a variety of treatments Overall Policy Recommendations Invest in Obesity Prevention Focus on Childhood Policies and Programs School-based Policies and Programs Community-Based Policies and Programs Health, Healthcare and Obesity Systematic Federal Review 2016 report reviews federal policies and programs in
