Visiting...With Huell Howser #1308 - DIABETES
Huell doesn't have to travel far to find the most compelling and groundbreaking information available about obesity and diabetes in children for his new one-hour special.
Dr. Francine R. Kaufman, author of "Diabesity: The Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic That Threatens America--And What We Must Do to Stop It" is the head of the Center for Diabetes at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and a Professor of Pediatrics at USC. Dr. Kaufman shares with Huell cutting-edge science, patient stories and her personal journey to win this battle.
Huell will also hear from LAUSD Board President Marlene Canter about what positive steps the school district is taking to improve children’s health and well-being. She spearheaded the successful effort to ban the sale of soft drinks and junk food in LAUSD schools.
Huell then visits the Roybal Comprehensive Health Center to learn about its model diabetes management program linked to the LAC/USC Medical Center.
