Millions have watched Dr. Robert Lustig's YouTube videos on the role sugar plays in obesity. In this compilation of the popular YouTube series "The Skinny on Obesity," Dr. Lustig and his UCSF colleagues dig deeper into the root causes of the obesity epidemic. Discover why what we eat is as important as how much we eat. Understand the effects of stress on obesity rates, and why some predict that the next generation will die younger than the current one due to obesity and the many health problems it causes.

Impairments in language and communication are among the core symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). These impairments are often the first symptoms to emerge and parents may raise initial concerns about their baby, later diagnosed with ASD, because he or she fails to communicate and has not begun speaking. In this talk data is presented from two large-scale longitudinal studies that focus on the early development of language in this population: a study of infants at risk for ASD and a study of toddlers with ASD who were followed from age 2 to 4, with an emphasis on which factors predict variability in language outcomes in ASD. These studies highlight some of the behavioral, environmental, and neurobiological origins of language and communicative development in very young children with ASD.

This panel focuses on the translation of clinically proven interventions into population impact, and population-based interventions that have clinical implications. Panelists explore future directions in global population sciences, including behavioral, social, and policy analysis, economics, and implementation sciences. Each panelist describes the status of his or her field, identifies emerging issues for the next two decades, and highlights opportunities for UCSF to advance global population health. Panelists: Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, Professor, Department of Medicine; Elvin Geng, Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine; Jim Kahn, Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. Claire Brindis, Professor, Departments of Pediatrics and Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Health Sciences moderates.

Dr. Robert Baron, Professor of Medicine at UCSF, explains the prevalence of obesity and the trends in the rates of obesity then looks at what to do. He takes a look at various popular diets along with surgical and medicine options and concludes that the goal is to be as fit as possible at your current weight and present further weight gain, then begin weight loss.
