City Visions: The Bigger Picture- Changing the Conversation about Type 2 Diabetes

The Bigger Picture

On March 28, 2016  City Visions addresses how Bay Area youth are changing the conversation about the Type 2 diabetes epidemic.

How have predatory marketing and limited access to affordable, healthy food led to rising rates of obesity and Type 2 Diabetes in our communities, and now, in our youth?  Host Joseph Pace and members of The Bigger Picture Campaign discuss the innovative tools and creative strategies they're using to shed light on the social and environmental factors that contribute to the growth of these chronic conditions.
