Diet & Weight at the Crux of COVID, Cardiometabolic Risk and Mental Health: Reverse Engineering a Host of Harms

The Impact of Nutrition on Mental and Physical Health

In the United States, obesity impacts 40% of adults, putting them at risk for developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and hypertension1. These physical health conditions also leave affected individuals with a higher risk of depression and mental ill health2.  

Obesity is not only detrimental to physical and mental health — it is also a huge driver of healthcare costs and lost productivity around the country. In fact, annual costs of obesity-related absenteeism is between $3.38 billion and $6.38 billion. 

We invite you to watch this webinar replay with Dr. David Katz and Misa Nuccio to learn how dietary factors influence disease risk and how you can empower your employees to adopt healthy nutritional habits to improve their overall health.
