Webinar: Warning Labels on Sugary Drinks
ChangeLab Solutions is hosting a webinar on September 24, 2014, at 2:30 p.m. ET to discuss a policy that would require sugar-sweetened beverages to come with safety warnings about their harmful health impact.
According to ChangeLab Solutions, this is “an emerging policy strategy that has great potential to change social norms around sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), to reduce the prevalence of youth and adult obesity and diabetes.”
