Why does San Francisco still need a public health plan now that the statewide health care exchange is open?  How proactive should government be in discouraging unhealthy behaviors?  Should it be curbing soft drink sizes, now that almost a third of all California hospital patients are obese?

Host David Onek sits down with Barbara Garcia, head of the San Francisco Department of Public Health, to discuss these questions and more.

Guest:  Barbara Garcia, Director of Health for the City and County of San Francisco.

Producer:  Wendy Holcombe
